The Pogo 12.5 HERMES is a performance sailboat used for teaching offshore racing and ocean passagemaking. Ocean Racers is an international sailing team that provides a chance for sailors to experience racing at the highest level in the biggest-name races around the world. They also have spots for those who want to learn about ocean crossing when they move HERMES from event to event. Being a teaching platform that is constantly in use, HERMES needs sails that can win races, cross oceans, and last for years. That’s why she is currently using a set of X-Drive carbon sails with Liteskin protection on both sides. Since the sails were delivered last year, they have done two trans-Atlantic crossings, the storm battered Rolex Middle Sea Race, the windy Caribbean 600, and the St. Marten Heineken Regatta.
