FUTHERMORE. . . .

Guardian, UK - Two Teddington rowers are planning to strip off for a perilous 4,350 mile trip across the Indian Ocean in a self-built boat to raise cash for charity. Daring Roger Haines and Tom Lee will have to manage around 2.6m oar strokes during the mammoth challenge which will see them travel from the coast of Australia to Mauritius. The pair will brave 50ft waves, 17 species of shark, 10 types of whale and even pirates - and they will do it completely nude for most of their 105-day journey in order to avoid chafing. They hope to raise L100,000 for charity, as well as become the first duo to row across the Indian Ocean - the third largest in the world. Roger and Tom are one of 30 teams competing in the Indian Ocean Race 2009, and despite putting L30,000 of their own money into the contest they still need L40,000 for items including a medical kit, a life raft, insurance and food provisions.

Let's hope they bring plenty of sun screen, rowing nude for 105 days could lead to serious sunburn on some normally not exposed to sunlight parts. Ouch!
