    I wonder though if the gap has never been wider and it is difficult to see where the benefits are going to come from and how affordable they might be. Particularly foils which to some are not cruising or racing. Americas Cup interest is probably now at it's lowest ebb .

    Have you looked at Pogo yachts?
    They take their inspiration from IMOCA.

    How long before someone sells a cruising version of the Open 40 class?

    I think it looks grand, for a racing boat, which is not the criteria that counts of course.
    It will probably have some fashion backwash; look out for a crop of tubby cruisers in black with red bracing, go faster, struts in the cockpit.

    We saw her launched and we're lucky enough to have quite a long chat with the great man who gave all sorts of detail about the foils, which needless to say I won't publicly repeat! Suffice to say I was left with the impression that the boundaries were being pushed again, like they were on the last HB which was arguably the fastest IMOCA at the time.

    I think the Pogo 12.50 is based on a Class 40.

    I love the solar panels incorporated in the deck. I feel this is the way forward for all production boats. There is often deck area that could be kept very clean and tidy and yet have the panels as part of the design, ideally in some way they could be replaced, as I assume in the case of production boats the boat may well out last the life of the panels.

    Which appears to be a small IMOCA 60....
