Leven Brown, the descendant of Christopher Columbus who rowed across the Atlantic last year, is now planning to windsurf across the same ocean.
Leven couldn't resist the next challenge after spending ten months back on dry land following his last transatlantic odyssey.
And his wife, celebrated milliner Yvette Jelfs, 39, said she was happy to be left holding the couple's first baby.
She said: "I think it is great. I think more people should be like him. People have to go and do the things they really want, I couldn't stand in his way." [Link]
