Ben Fogle – ex Taransay Castaway – has been going to some extreme lengths in his progression towards celebrity status. His latest is an attempt to row the Atlantic with Olympic rower, James Cracknell, in aid of Children in Need. To avoid the perils of chafing, they are rowing naked. Seems a bit desperate to me. Pretty pictures of the said Ben are to be found at http://www.benfogle.com/
It should be noted that I have never, ever, not even in my farflung silly youth, or in my wildest dreams considered braving fifty foot waves. No matter the good cause.
