What is this?

It wasn't so hard and a number of readers sent the correct answer right away. It is Vasco Vascotto's modified Pisco Sour, on her maiden test sail in Valencia, on Monday afternoon. Unlike most of the TP52's, Pisco Sour is docked in Valencia's yacht club and was sailing by herself for some time before joining Desafío, Marazzi Sailing and AUDI Q8 for a small fleet regatta. The great novelty this year is that Vascotto will be calling tactics, having decided to hand the helm over to the young Italian sailor Alberto Bolzan.

The brand new Artemis as well as the first-ever Emirates Team NZ TP52 have already arrived and are being fitted out, the former in the BMW Oracle base and the latter in, obviously, her own home.


We are back in action and we start with a simple quiz. For the last 2 days we've been more than 8 hours a day on the water taking some interesting pictures but we can't publish them before Wednesday.

Still, there is a nice one from yesterday. What boat is this?

marazzi sailing is the former artemis. i guess.
The good thing for me is that Juanpa Cadario is in Pisco Sour instead of being in Matador as last year. Good luck Juanpa!
