I hope as is customary El Reg will do a Playmobil reconstruction ........ oh wait ........
A Playmobil pirate ships's journey to the Caribbean sea risks being scuppered as its supplies run low. The vessel, named Adventure by two Scottish brothers – Ollie Ferguson, 8, and Harry, 5 – and their family, set sail from the west coast of Africa last year. It was edging closer to Guyana when the brothers' dad, MacNeill …
Next to nothing. I just looked at the first 5V 1W panel available on AliBangDeal, and it would add a whopping 23 grams (5.47mJubs) to the vessel. They might have actually needed a few smaller ones in series because of available deck space though, but that wouldn't make much of a difference.
No but yesterday I was at the Longhope Sailing Club AGM where I became Vice-Commodore <blows trumpet> Our regatta will be in June most likely.
Depending on the wind and tide, sailing up the bay can be a challenge. (See course, the link is to a png file)
For spectators it is great , they can see the entire race from the pier or the pub. (recommended!)
We have some very professional independent timekeepers, so no cheating.
Also, if you consult the RYA's training charts you'll be able to say that you've sailed in the "Northern Territories". (RYA did some copy/paste)
If you set sail now you might just make in time :)
