The pair crossed ten countries on their way in their 1,500 pounds 'Mad River Reflection 17' vessel.

Wilkins, who is from Kent, said that it was a very long trip but a great experience and he really enjoyed it, despite not going through much training.

Smith, who is from Hertfordshire, said that they had to out of direction many times to stay on the water, and that the route they undertook consisted of network of rivers and canals with hundreds of miles to battle upstream.
