A Paddle to End All Paddles German Swimmers to Race Their Pet Ducks to the North Sea

Two Germans have embarked on an unusual odyssey by swimming 300 miles down rivers alongside their hand-raised pet ducks. They are so determined to complete the trip and reach the North Sea that they will tow the ducks along in a dinghy if the birds run out of steam or lose interest in the endless paddling.
