View of the small yacht, Rusalka Mist, at sea showing solar panels (photovoltaic arrays) deployed. These can charge the 12V batteries at up to 9 Amps under full, direct sunlight.

In 1999 - 2000 two people sailed Rusalka Mist from the island of Jersey in the English Channel, via Tenerife to the Caribbean and back via the Azores. The solar panels and a towed, water-power generator provided self-sufficiency in electrical energy during this trip, both at sea and at anchor during the year.
