Liz Clark and The Voyage of Swell

When I try to imagine a 27 year old unknown surfer sailing a 40 foot boat ("Swell") from San Diego to New Zealand (and then all around for another year or two), having lined up funding plus an impressive list of sponsors (far more than I was able to secure for Chowhound during its long slog, in spite of a national brand and wider connections), getting off the boat at landfall and surfing with gaping wounds from her repeated coral wipeouts, and all the while writing mature, insightful prose about the journey (including some intriguing food writing), my brain sort of explodes.

The shamefully disorganized site that was set up for her reports
