Prologue

1) Playing with model sailboats is a great fun for kids in the Luxembourg Park, Paris.
2) You can make a PET bottle sailboat easily with an used soda bottle and 100 yen shop goods.
3) The ponds around Rokko Island Central Station are good for 風来坊セイリング fou-là-y-beau sailing; no radio control, free sailing.
4) The free race (no fee) of the PET bottle sailboats by kids gives you international friendship.

    Meet happy children!

P class rule (E class rule is not decided yet.)

Additional

2) a rudder of the height within 5cm, the length within 3cm

(*1) A hook or figure on the cap is allowed, and a little change for the attachment with glues is acceptable.
