One of the icon's of TV sailing and sports news, Martin Tasker, is doing his bit for Movember. That's when all sorts of normal males take leave of their senses and sprout facial hair for charity.

Martin's making a clean start after the 34th's America's Cup and is shaving off his 'moustache' for a good cause. A substantial movement around the Auckland waterfront a reported to be happy to make a substantial donation for him to not grow it back again. He writes:
