I don't follow many cruising websites. Even people we know tend to just rehash the same old stories from paradise. But some sites compel me to check in every now and then to see how things are going. Liz Clark's is one of them.
Her story is fun and amazing in itself. She was introduced to sailing young. Her parents took her on a six-month cruise when she was ten. At fifteen she started surfing and within just a few years was the College Women's National Champion. Just a couple of years out of college the opportunity to become captain of her own boat presented itself, and she took it. Seven years later she's cruised 18,000 miles, surfed some of the most amazing, and unknown, surf breaks in the Pacific, and now embarked on a speaking tour.
Anyway, the point is, she's super inspirational and an amazingly positive energy in everything she does.
Then a couple of days ago she posted about a 24-year-old girl named Naomi Crum.
