A Cache / The Cache

PT: Esta cache veio substituir a cache Farol de Sines, que foi vandalizada e destruída. Esperemos que esta dure mais tempo.
EN: This new cache replaced the previous cache Farol de Sines, that has been destroyed by muggles. Let's hope it will live longer.

PT: Para descobrir a cache terá que visitar o farol nas coordenadas indicadas e fazer algumas contas.
Conte o número de portas (A) e de janelas (B) na fachada principal (a fachada virada para o mar) do edifício do farol, ao nível do chão.
Depois faça as contas:

EN: To find the cache you must visit the lighthouse at the supplied coordinates, then do some calculations.
How many doors (A) and windows (B) exist at ground level at the front wall (at sea side) of the lighthouse building?
Now calculate:

N 37º 57.B*150+A*100+(B-A)*2 W 008º 53.(B+A)*20+B+2

(Para verificar o resultado, some os 6 algarismos da parte decimal das coordenadas N e W = 20 / To check the result, add the 6 digits after the decimal point of both N and W coordinates = 20)

Agora dirija-se ao local final e... boa sorte! / Now go to the final location and... good luck!
