Man Tries to Cross the Irish Sea in Giant Hamster Wheel


(Video Link

Chris Todd has a dream: to walk from Wales to Ireland. His means of doing so is a paddlewheel raft that he made in his backyard. Alas, 9 hours into a projected 48-hour crossing, he had to stop because of technical problems. Event coordinator Annie Davies explained:

"He was going really well and making a lot better progress than we'd actually anticipated when he had a problem with his rudders," said Ms Davies. [...]

Mr Todd is expected to try again later in the month and is still hoping to raise £20,000 for both the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the Wiltshire Blind Association.
