Swell: A Sailing Surfer's Voyage of Awakening by Captain Liz Clark (Hardcover Book)


Embarking on an adventure that most only fantasize about, in 2006 Liz Clark set sail from Santa Barbara, California, as captain of her 40-foot sailboat, Swell, headed south toward the wonder and learning that lies beyond the unbroken horizon. In true stories overflowing with wild waves and constant challenges, at the whim of the weather, relationships sweet and sour, nature’s marvels and colorful cultures, Liz captures her voyage in gripping detail in this memoir, sharing tales of sailing in high seas, of solitude and surprises, of finding connection to the earth and commitment to living in harmony with it. More than ten years, 20,000 miles, countless adventures, and one cat later, she’s still out there.
