The Daily Edge reports on an Irishman who has announced plans to be the youngest man to row across the Indian Ocean - naked.
Keith Whelan, 30, intends to row the 6,000km route from Australia to Mauritius completely naked in an effort to raise money for anti-Aids charity Keep A Child Alive.
The event management consultant is taking the task completely seriously, having already trained for 18 months in preparation for the arduous task.
Whelan will be rowing in a 23-foot boat fitted with a radio, GPS, a satellite phone and computer equipment that will let him blog and tweet from the middle of the ocean.
If he completes the journey, Whelan would be the first Irishman to complete the Indian Ocean route solo - let alone in the nude.
