On Sunday 30 January, 84-year-old adventurer Anthony Smith set sail across the Atlantic Ocean on the An-Tiki – a raft made from water pipes. He aims to raise £50,000 for WaterAid.
Mr Smith and his three-man crew of 'mature and intrepid gentlemen', aged from 56 to 84 years old, will use only the ocean currents and a sail to make the 2,800 mile voyage from the Canary Islands to the Bahamas.http://www.wateraid.org/international/about_us/newsroom/9499.asp
