What is this?

It's Easter Monday and most of Europe is enjoying the last slow day of the 4-day Easter break. The sixth leg of Volvo Ocean Race also started slowly but it seems that things speed up. In order to liven up this afternoon, why don't you try to guess what boat is depicted in the photo, courtesy of the excellent Spanish photographer Nico Martinez. She is now docked in Palma's Yacht Club and will be racing in PalmaVela, starting Thursday.

Its the wally 143 esense. An unreal interior should you ever get a chance to check it out. Insane looking boat.

Well, the fact she is racing this week explains why she was out sail-testing last week in Genoa (Italy). Seems the One-sails are being replaced by North in the new set.
