Athy's Keith Whelan's Indian Ocean Expedition

The Naked Adventurer set to row solo...

This week, Keith Whelan commences his attempt to become the youngest man, and first Irishman, to row solo across the Indian Ocean.  He will row the 6000km alone and unassisted from Western Australia to Mauritius, just off the East coast of Africa.

Having gotten into a rowing boat for the first time only a year or so beforehand, he will spend 110 days alone at sea, facing 50 foot swells, hurricane force winds and unrelenting sunshine - and  he’ll be naked!

Check full details at  and support Keith's nominated charity 'Keep a Child Alive'.

Keep a Child Alive is dedicated to providing life-saving anti-retroviral treatment, care and support services to children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa and India.
