‘I live alone at sea. Here's how to be happy in isolation’

Susan Smillie, The Guardian, 4 April 2020

Our lives have changed radically but we can adapt, says Susan Smillie, a former Guardian writer who has lived solo on a boat for three years – and learned to love it.

I gave up a much-loved job as a journalist at the Guardian three years ago to lead a simpler life on my tiny sailboat. I ended up crossing the Channel to France, sailing down the Atlantic coast to Portugal, into the Mediterranean, through Spain and Italy to Greece. It’s the slowest life imaginable, travelling at walking pace, always close to nature. I sleep freely in secluded bays, by white beaches, fish and octopus swimming below me. I’ve sailed with dolphins and whales, woken to horses galloping on deserted beaches in southern Italy, and anchored by castles and cathedral-like cliffs. It is magical and it is nourishing.

--> Use a simple map from the internet and try to (roughly) sketch the route Susan Smillie has sailed since 2017.
How has her life changed since then?
--> Why does she call it ‘nourishing’. Look up the word (if you do not know its meaning) and think about what it might mean in connection to her new experience. Make notes

The downside is that I have few home comforts (no fridge in 40C heat is challenging), very little money, and I spend a lot of time alone - sometimes at sea for weeks. I have become my own living proof that you need very little to be extremely happy.

--> What are the challenges she has to face? Explain the last statement of this paragraph. Make notes

Sailors, I thought, are generally brave enough to weather this storm. In that spirit, I sat down to write this article and give advice on how to cope with isolation, feeling calm and strong about my decision to sit out this pandemic in Greece. I had been writing for just five minutes when the expected lockdown was announced. […] Ten minutes later I was sobbing. I called my friend Cat. “I’ve been expecting this,” she said, in the tone of someone who really knows you. Next, I drank a whole bottle of wine while scrolling through my laptop, crying at the kindness of people far away. Not the font of wisdom I’d hoped to be.

--> How did she react emotionally to the lockdown in Greece? Make notes

But I was right after all – we humans are incredibly resourceful and we do adapt. Fear is a normal reaction to danger and uncertainty. In my travels, fear has kept me safe and I’ve learned to rely on gut instinct – acting quickly to change plans when dark clouds signal an oncoming storm, or staying alert through hours of fatigue in thick fog off Spain’s rocky Galician coast.

The fear beforehand is always the worst bit – once we’re in crisis, we cope, recover and learn. But pay attention – this is an extraordinary time. Normality is suspended; life has slowed. We are alert. We see clearly what’s important and what’s not. There is much to despair over, but we will also surprise ourselves at what we can face, with grace, courage, humour – with each other.

--> What does she tell us about fear? Make notes

I’ve had my most memorable times in splendid isolation, spending days exploring Cala Magraner in Mallorca, my only company gulls and goats climbing vertiginous cliffs. But not all isolation is welcome and even solo sailors are social creatures. After too long alone last winter, I sailed to the Sardinian city of Olbia and turned to the travel platform Couchsurfer. “I don’t need a bed,” I messaged strangers, “but fancy a coffee?” I made amazing friends – and learned a lesson in setting pride aside to admit you’re lonely.

--> What does this story tell us about sailors and human beings in general? Make notes

However independent you are, emotional support is vital when you’re far from loved ones. I’m now better at getting that support – creating WhatsApp groups to check in with friends, share the positives, talk through the scarier stuff. If you reach out, there will always be someone to pick you up when your inevitable meltdown comes. And you will do the same for them. During my recent panic, friends simply reminded me that it’s OK to feel bad. […]

--> Where did Smillie get emotional support when she needed it?

Sailors are good at connecting fast and helping each other because we know what it is to be in trouble at sea. Our shared lifestyle means we always try to be friendly to each other without crowding each other’s limited space. When I seek shelter from storms, I look for the safest place and hope there are other boats – not too many, and not close enough to collide – for the comfort of similar-minded people nearby. Sailors support each other, even if it’s just through friendliness. I remember the guy in Falmouth who raised a glass from his cockpit as I waved at him in a howling gale; the time on the island of Vulcano , north of Sicily, when a neighbour, sensing my anxiety as we veered in 60mph winds, messaged approval of my anchor’s set, unspoken reassurance that I wouldn’t drag off to sea. Right now I’m finding joy in the cheerful whistling of my friendly Dutch neighbour and the eggs from his happy hens that a French sailing friend left. There is enormous comfort from the smallest human contact. Never underestimate it.

--> How do sailors support each other? Where do they get comfort? What can the reader learn from them? Make notes

The challenge of isolation in bad weather is boredom, particularly when your inside space is less than six square metres. But overriding that is the relief that you’re safe. Living at sea, you take risk seriously. Should you forget this, popping your head out of the hatch can remind you that boredom is a welcome problem.

--> How can you overcome feelings of boredom? What helps you to deal with boredom? Make notes

It never fails to surprise me how quiet it is inside when I return from the chaos of wind screeching and thunder cracking. You learn to appreciate your home even more – being grateful for its sanctuary when there’s a threat outside. You are always aware of how precious life is.

--> In what way does the feeling of safety help?

Simple daily rhythms bring enormous comfort. During 10 days of storm in Villasimius, Sardinia, Radio 4’s “Book at Bedtime” happened to be Jaws. Perfect! There’s the day’s first cup of tea; appreciating the light at sunset; waiting for the Plough to appear in the sky; a good dinner. I find cooking therapeutic. But when the boat is leaping about in a storm, and on the boat kitchen knives fling at your head, it’s best, I’ve learned, to stick to store-cupboard soups and stews.

--> What “simple joys” does Smillie find comfort in? Make notes

This won’t be popular advice, or easy, but try to limit internet use. Technical things can go wrong. (For the same reason, I never totally rely on my engine at sea, because bitter experience has taught me it will cut out just as I’m pushed towards some hazard: in Brittany’s notorious Chenal du Four, and again while racing an oncoming storm to Elba’s safe harbour in the Tuscan archipelago). Too much screen time is bad for us anyway, and if we collectively crash the internet through overuse or become vulnerable to viruses (not that one), we are going to be bereft. A reliance on solar power and a cap on data means I use it sparingly – brilliant journalism to inform, social media to connect, music to lift my spirits, but increasingly I’m turning to nourishing things that can’t fail – books, cloudspotting, writing, growing herbs. And exercise – if I can manage some stretching positions in the 2x1 metres of flat space I have, anyone can. It occurred to me yesterday that I could use a mooring line to do some skipping on the harbour wall here at Pylos. In theory. I’m wondering, too, whether a swim around the boat breaks the lockdown. Think I’ll risk it.

--> Why should people limit their use of the internet? What alternative activities does she recommend? Make notes

[…] The strangest thing for sailors, so used to freedom, is to be trapped – boats shouldn’t be in a harbour in good weather, and we want to leave. The sacrifice of living in a small space and the effort of maintaining this lifestyle are the price we pay for that freedom. Now that freedom is curtailed – but it must be. We have the reserves to adapt and find happiness. I’m focusing on the beauty of the natural world immediately around me: the birds that fly around the harbour at sunset, the fish nibbling the quay, the crabs scuttling below. I’m taking enormous comfort from the fact that whatever else we’ve done to them, other species appear to be largely untouched by this thing. The natural world is getting much-needed respite from our reduction in activity and pollution levels. And most importantly, people are noticing, and sharing joy about that. We are becoming aware that this is a chance for real change, and that is the biggest positive of all. When this is over, so too will be the narrative that we can’t change our systems, our society, ourselves. Let’s use this time wisely – the planet urgently needs change, and so do we.

--> What’s the great opportunity this crisis gives us? What are Smillie’s hopes concerning the future? Make notes
