Around world dream sunk ...in two days

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

A YOUNG cou­ple who sold all they owned to spend their lives sail­ing the world saw their dream cap­size af­ter two days at sea.

Tan­ner Broad­well, 26, and Nikki Walsh, 24, jumped over­board with their dog as their boat sank af­ter los­ing its keel at a dock near Tampa, Florida.

The pair, with no sail­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, had scraped to­gether €8,000 for the house­boat be­cause they were “sick of their jobs”.

Coast­guards have now or­dered them to sal­vage the unin­sured 28ft boat, which will cost an­other €8,000. They have only €70 be­tween them.

Tan­ner said: “I lost all I had in 20 min­utes.”
