A couple who sold all of their possessions so they could sail around the world have been left with nothing after their boat sank just two days into their journey.

Tanner Broadwell and Nikki Walsh started their adventure on a 28-foot sailboat a week ago, setting off from the marina in Tarpon Springs.

However, emergency services were called following reports of a capsized pontoon in the Gulf of Mexico close to Madeira Beach.


Nearly a year ago the couple decided that they were tired of working.

"How can we live our lives when we’re working most of the day and you have to pay so much just to live?" Ms. Walsh said to the New York Post.

"Most of the work you do goes to your home. There has to be another option," she added.

The couple their pooch, set sail to conquer the seven seas. Or so they thought.

While sailing, their boat struck an object and immediately began to take on water.


They escaped without injury, however, everything on board 'floated away'.
