What is this?

We don't have all the information yet on this Extreme 40 yacht training off the Malvarosa beach in Valencia, other than what can be easily observed in Port America's Cup or on the water, courtesy of the iPhone of one of Valencia Sailing's readers and friends.

The Italian yacht is docked in the Mascalzone Latino base but to the best of our knowledge it has no relation to the Challenger of Record of the 34th America's Cup.


I know it's taken from far away but can you tell what boat was sailing off the Malvarosa beach on Thursday?

It really looks like the old Tommy Hilfiger, or possibly Holmatro, with a new set of sails obviously.
Or it could be a brand new one...

Nice is not the French town but the name of a company.
The Italian owner of the Wally80 "Inti" have a company named "Nice"

In the second picture the words underneath 'Nice' are very likely 'Automation' which agrees with the theory that it is branded in the livery of Nice S.p.A http://www.niceforyou.com/nice-company.php
Certainly looks Italian.
