Ben Fogle is quite a well known tv presenter in the UK and I admire him a lot for attempting something like this.

And in the news this week. 3 relatively inexperienced young men have decided to attempt to swim the Atlantic ocean. We don't know why these men are doing this, we only know that they are connected by a guitar forum....
