Yachtsmen strip off
Two yachtsmen from the Canaries kept their promise to sail in the nude if fans helped send their Facebook ‘likes’ soaring.

01.04.2014 - Spanish champions and Rio Olympic hopefuls Onán Barreiros and Juan Curbelo, who are members of the Royal Yacht Club in Las Palmas, took to their boat for a Saturday sail in the bay of the Gran Canaria capital and promptly proceeded to strip off, asking companions on other boats to take the all-important photos for their Facebook page.  The pair offered to bare all if 1,500 supporters signed up to like them on their site and the promise, widely publicised in the media, produced the required number within days, leaving them no choice but to honour the vow.
