Woman And Her Cat Have Been Sailing Around The World Together For Years

1

For ten years, surfer and environmentalist Liz Clark has been exploring the Pacific Ocean via a 40-foot boat named Swell. She first set sail from her California home base in 2006 to pursue a lifelong dream of extended sea travel, and she has since voyaged around Mexico, Central America, Kiribati, and Polynesia, covering over 18,000 aquatic miles.

On her website, she says she enjoys “indulging in the freedom of solitude and making choices based on weather and swell forecasts rather than itineraries,” and her solitary steering has inspired a sense of agency and personal development as expansive as the deep blue sea.

Despite enjoying the freedom of solitude, she did welcome a furry, four-footed co-captain in 2013: a rescued cat she named Amelia in honor of Amelia Earhart, but fondly refers to as Tropicat. When Clark and Amelia first met (on land, of course), the feral feline was skinny and hungry, but seemed to have a “commanding lioness air and carefree bravado.” Clark immediately recognized the cat as a kindred spirit with a “similar thirst for adventure” and brought the new kitty crew member aboard.
