Head Gear Redux
An astute reader, Tinkerci, solved for all of us the puzzle previously posted at Head Gear of what Jean-Luc, the Groupama navigator was wearing as he nobly stared off into the sunset or somewhere. He was sporting his Petzl E-Lite Emergency head torch, presumably with a long-range whistle that can signal one’s position for rescue and a SOS Morse code illustration on the whistle.
Jean-Luc is not alone on Groupama in doing so, as the above photo attests. I don't know the name of this fellow gadgetophile, but clearly the Petzl E-Lite is a Groupama thing and wearing it in daylight seems to be part of the ritual (although those clouds in the background do look a bit menacing).
Could it be something else entirely, cleverly disguised as a Petzl E-Lite?
