An adventurous husband and wife have completed a grueling 870 mile journey to the Mediterranean in a homemade wooden boat. <br />
<br />
Mat and Polly Hilton traveled from England all the way to the South of France in a tiny 13ft sailboat to raise money for charity. <br />
<br />
The epic voyage took the intrepid duo 56 days to complete and exhaustingly they were forced to row almost the entire way due to poor sailing conditions.
