Leaving from Port Soller on June 1, 2018, they paddled the 344-mile coastline in 24 days. The two began training in February; a combination of paddle practice; weight training for strength and cardio for fitness. They took professional advice on their technique to ensure they could contend with the hardships of paddling up to six hours per day; many days paddling over a half marathon.
