Alinghi 5 just arrived in Valencia?

Update, 7pm Valencia time: It is indeed the cargo ship carrying Alinghi's catamaran that arrived today (Sunday) at noon (Valencia time) in Valencia. The ship is now waiting outside the commercial port and will enter on Monday but it will not unload before Tuesday.

On the other hand, OceanLady, the cargo carrying BOR90, is now off the coast of Andalucia in southern Spain and is expected to arrive in Valencia on Monday morning at around 6am.

I'm sorry but there are no photos. I was denied access to the commercial port as it appears, according to the Port Police, that both Alinghi and BMW Oracle have restricted the access strictly to their personnel.

According to a friend of Valencia Sailing at the commercial port of Valencia, a cargo ship with, apparently, Alinghi 5 onboard arrived in Valencia at noon, January 3.

I will try to have photos later, if this proves to be correct.

It's definitely Alinghi 6 as Alinghi 5 still remain hidden in a closed tent in RAK.

Maybe he was a little bit confused, BOR has arrived yet? Maybe id BOR, not Alinghi.

According to Port Authority of Valencia berth information service, the Oceanlady (with the BOR on board) is due in Valencia (transversal muelle del este) on 04/01/2010 AT 07:30 am.
This is public information from the website of the PAV.
Perhaps the ship with Alinghi is also arriving. O no.

Looks like BOR is docked & A5 is still on its' hook. Looking like EB is not too popular in VLC.
