It looks like they are trying to put up a tent and haven't got a clue.

Brilliant !! This reminds me of a time 3 or 4 years ago when me & my mate were out on our canoe on the cut at Appley bridge, It was blowing a gale so we made a sail out of a big piece of plastic we found & sailed at top speed all the way to Wigan just using the paddle as a rudder.
