An embarrassing end to an attempt at a Transatlantic journey by a pair of amateur paddlers.

FOX News Radio's Alastair Wanklyn reports:

Two brothers build a paddle boat and set out from Spain aiming to reach the Americas in a hundred days, breaking previous records.

It's a 3,000 mile trip, but they get only 40 miles when the rudder breaks and they call for help.

The expedition was drawn up over a beer in a bar. And the rescuers might just have rolled their eyes: when they arrived they found the paddlers were trying to do it naked.
