      J'ai finalement opté pour un système de cavalier percé accueillant le diabolo mais cela n'est pas très convaincant (pièce grossièrement manufacturée, angles vifs, encombrement).

     Quelqu'un aurait il une solution pour la jonction diabolo-barre franche et diabolo-bras de liaison.

No, no, you are at the right place. Let s wait the next race (April 8), that will confirm or not the place of the p3.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently working on a 2018-2020 Mini project (Serie). I don't yet speak French and my research is slow going, so I apologize in advance if my questions are basic, or their answers "obvious".

I'm working on a 2019 Transat campaign, and I am trying to get a boat and be ready for the 2018 season. I've quit my job as a yachtie and am hard at work putting a project together.

I have many questions, though it seems as I figure out the answer as soon as I ask the question.

I am curious, why is POGO 3 the overwhelmingly popular boat choice? Some of the answers are obvious, Structures is by far the most successful and proven designer and builder of Minis. But in the last Transat:
  • ARGO
  • POGO 3
This doesn't suggest design dominance of the POGO 3. But if you look at the 2016 Mini circuit regattas, for example--
  • Pornichet Select
  • Mini en Mai
  • Trophee Marie-Agnes Peron
  • Mini Fastnet
In ALL of these races, the top 5 places were Pogo 3.
An exception would be the Les Sables d'Olonne>Azores>Les Sables race:
  • Pogo 3
  • Pogo 2
  • Pogo 3
  • Pogo 3
Could someone please share some insight into this? I'm an outsider looking in, so there is only so much that I can research from Florida. And yes, I understand that the boat requires a good sailor. But you're only as fast as your boat.
Also, am I discounting the Nacira and Argo unwisely? It would seem that the OFCET and POGO 3 stand apart from the others, but what do I know.

On another topic, I have finished translating the 2016 Notice of Race (into English) for the Les Sables>Azores>Les Sables regatta. If anyone would like it.

I have a Pogo2 on a swing mooring.  The mooring line terminates with a bridle, running to cleats on both side.  There may be a little chafe so I am intending to install some plastic hose onto the line where it passes over the side.  The anchorage is sheltered and always flat water.

Perhaps you are able to install a pair of small cleats?
