On the Move + Steer with Your Heart Film Trailer
Swell is on the move! After 3 years of writing my book (to be released April 2018!), I’m finally free to roam the sea again. Getting Swell back into voyaging mode over the last couple months has been both exciting and frustrating, but the projects were ticked off one by one, and Swell took to the open sea again mid-June with her new North Sails! After working out some kinks in the engine room in the city of Papeete, we’re poised and ready again to head out on a new adventure. I can’t help but smile as I type that… :) With Tahui (my sweet hunk of a man) and Tropicat as her crew, Swell will sail wherever the wind blows this weekend.
As I write this, I’m anchored as near to the wifi signal in the bay as possible in order to announce the upcoming release of a new short film, Steer With Your Heart, brought to you with love by dear friends and supporting companies. Music and edit of this trailer thanks to my extraordinary sea sister, Leah Dawson. Next blog will be the full 18 minute film, directed and edited by Teva Perrone, produced by Patagonia, Inc, featured song by Leah Dawson, and with special thanks to GoPro for the cameras that collected this footage through the years of voyaging.
I hope this blogs finds you living inspired and chasing your own heart’s callings! Enjoy the trailer…
With love and wishes for your biggest dreams and desires fulfilled,

Looking forward to the next chapter. I have several questions regarding sailing and life on a boat.

Hello Liz and Amelia and Swell,
I just wanted to say how grateful I am for being able to read more about your experiences. Because of inspiring folks like you, my husband and I are thankfully moving onto a 35′ sailboat this summer! We’re moving it to a nearby lake (about an hour northeast of Atlanta where we live now) so we can stay close to family as my mother has some health issues and hopefully moving it to blue waters down the line. I wish you, Amelia, and Swell many incredible adventures to come!

Hey there surfer. I just noticed on one of your posts a ways back a picture
of you getting ready to “sashimi” a fresh caught fish. I’d appreciated some
advice on this since I too occasionally eat fish on my journey, and have
wondered if it is safe due to the parasite issues. Do you “cerivche” yours
to eliminate parasite risk? I have been told that even if one can not spot
any parasites, well, there can be parasite eggs in the flesh, eggs that the
human eye can not detect. Any insight into this of yours would I’d be grateful
for. I assume you have met many people over the years on the sea who indulge
in raw fish. Is this the case? DO they seem healthy, vibrant, and in some ways
better off as a result of the raw fish consumption? I suspect this as a possibility.
So many fish in the sea get all their nourishment from eating other raw fish, what’s
to say humans wouldn’t benefit too.
