The Half Bird

  • Susan Smillie



One woman's solo sailing odyssey - from Land's End to the shores of Greece - explores the unexpected joy of solitude

When Susan set sail from the south-west coast of England on her beloved sailboat, Isean, she was unaware this spontaneous departure would lead to a journey spanning several years and countries across the continent.

Enduring both physical and navigational challenges, the other side of her story reveals a more important change - her inner journey - that took place. This wasn't a challenge or a mid-life adventure; it was much gentler than that, but much greater too. She was seeking nothing less than an entirely different life, having left the land far behind to call the wild, unbiddable sea home.
