Woman Quit Her Job And Went Sailing Around The Globe With Her Rescue Kitty (19 pics)

Posted in Random » Awesome   5 May 2016   / 3105 views

34 year-old Liz Clark, a former bartender and a self-proclaimed “she-pirate,” quit her job in San Diego, California in 2006 and has been sailing around the world since. She was offered a Cal 40 sailboat with only one condition: she had to document all her adventures. Naturally, “Captain Lizzy” took this opportunity. In 2013 she welcomed aboard a 6-month old kitten that she rescued. Now the two of them are inseparable and share a life full of adventures.


Liz Clark has been sailing around the world since 2006 when she quit her job as a bartender

Clark was given a Cal 40 sailboat on the condition that she would document her adventures around the world

In 2013, she welcomed a 6-month-old kitten that she rescued aboard and named her Amelia

The feral kitten was skinny and hungry but Clark saw a  “commanding lioness air and carefree bravado” in her

“She has adapted to living surrounded by water”

“She has to go out of a cat comfort zone often”

“But I think she now understands that I will keep her safe and she will have a lot of fun in the end”

Amelia also loves hiking with Clark!

As well as enjoying the pleasures of SPA together…

She sure has a similar thirst for adventure as her human!

“It was petrifying to leave the safety and security of the dock and my friends and family”

“I didn’t know if I would be capable of captaining a boat this big and managing all that goes into a trip where you’re off the grid…”

“…but I knew I had to try or I’d always regret it”

“When I left I didn’t know how I’d make money, and I don’t come from a wealthy family or anything, like many people assume”

“I sleep on a pool mat under the stars”

“But I feel rich when I look up at that night sky and breath the fresh ocean air and leap into the sea each morning”

“She makes Swell [the yacht] feel much more like a home”
