Sunday Night & Denham Hitchcock and his wife Mari (pictured together) have sold all their belongings and now live on a boat
The couple bought the decayed second-hand yacht, called Latitude, and repaired it for two years before the sail departed from Sydney to Lord Howe Island
Once on Lord Howe Island, the couple got stuck for a few days when a storm cell struck and stopped them at the edge of a reef.
Mr. Hitchcock said they were dealing with 55 knots of wind and lots of rain, while the couple braced themselves to land in the reef.
& # 39; The joys of life on a boat. You see every day with the sun and the surfing, and the snorkeling, and the sailing and the sunny weather with the rising sun & he said.
& # 39; Then there are the nights like this. 30 knots of wind, the boat is knocked over, wind whistles through the boat. & # 39;
& # 39; I wonder if the berth will hold, the horizon gets lighter and more storms end. Welcome to sailing. & # 39;
For days the couple worked in shifts to make sure they didn't end up in the ocean by sitting on top of the rocking boat in heavy rain.
Mrs. Hitchcock had severe seasickness, where she had to lie or lie outside.
With even more wind coming, the couple chose to escape to the coast for two days to escape the circumstances.

& # 39; We have prepared Latitude for hurricane conditions, anchoring, indoor paddleboards, & # 39; said Mrs. Hitchcock.
They sat on the shore and nervously watched everything they & # 39; dance on the lake line & # 39; had.
The storm opened for a short time and the wind dropped to 24 knots, so the couple took a chance and sailed to open water.
& # 39; There will still be a big swell and a lot of wind, but if we don't leave now, we will never leave this place, & # 39; said Mr. Hitchcock.
After five days of sailing through five-meter waves and strong winds, they finally entered New Caledonia.

Mr Hitchcock worked on Channel Seven & # 39; s current business Sunday Night program, which was canceled earlier this month.
The announcement was made on October 2 with Seven & # 39; s news and public affairs director Craig McPherson who said it was a & # 39; very difficult decision in a challenging TV landscape & # 39 ;.
& # 39; After 11 years at the forefront of our Public Affairs offering, I announce with great sadness the closure of the daily activities of Sunday Night: True Stories &, said Mr. McPherson.
& # 39; I want to thank the exceptional team of reporters, producers, camera drivers, editors, and many others who have contributed to the production of more than 500 hours of high-quality public affairs programming throughout its lifetime, "he added.
Mr. McPherson confirmed that Sunday Night will stay in the air until the end of the year with a & # 39; small production team & # 39; that continues to produce episodes.
