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.
