    Does anyone know how this man got on with the charity row mentioned here.this video came up on another thread and after googling it I think he died in 2014 but no mention if he succeeded in his row or how far he got.

    I spoke to a few locals about this and no he didn't complete the trip. I think the aran islands was about as far as he got.
    The piece at the end with him running naked into the sea was recorded at 5am to avoid any onlookers!!
