SEA Alumni Events, held regionally, are a great way to keep abreast of SEA news and reconnect with or meet new shipmates. We send invitations by email based on your last known address. If you've recently moved or changed your email, we encourage you to update your information in the Alumni Directory to stay abreast of events in your location.
SEA Day at Mystic Seaport Museum
We are excited to offer a special day for the SEA community at Mystic Seaport on Columbus Day, Monday, October 10, 2016. Join us for a day of maritime exploration!
The museum will be open to the public, but the SEA community will receive a group rate on tickets. We will have access to Watercraft Hall, an area with ~500 vessels not normally open to the public, cruise along the Mystic River waterfront on Liberty, and swizzle at Schaefer’s Spouter Tavern – all just for SEA. All additional activities are free - no cost other than the group rate admission ticket price. To participate, we ask that you register by Thursday, October 6, 2016. The schedule of events is also listed on the registration page. Families are welcome!
A special thank you to Shannon McKenzie, W-135 alumna and Director of Watercraft Programs at Mystic Seaport, for arranging the activities and making this day possible!

New Year’s Alumni Sail on the Corwith Cramer
Let's go sailing! Now's your chance to join an alumni sail on the Corwith Cramer over New Year's in the beautiful, balmy Caribbean. Cast off the down hauls, haul-away the halyards, and steer for open waters with your favorite person surrounded by other alumni and guided by the Cramer crew.
Cruise Dates: December 28, 2016 to January 2, 2017
Cruise Track: St. Croix to St. John to St. Croix
Program Fee: $900 per person
As with all SEA programs, they will be vigorous, fun and highly rewarding! You and your guest will participate in vessel operations as part of the crew by standing watch, handling sail, navigating, helping in the science lab, and enjoying shipboard life.
The program fee is $900 per person and includes room and board throughout the duration of the sail. Alumni are invited to bring one guest (age 12+). Payment of the full amount or deposit of $450 per person is required to reserve a bunk. Bunks will be filled on a first come, first served basis and are held by credit card at the time of booking. For more information about the sail and to reserve your bunk, please visit the alumni sail registration page.
If you still have questions about the sail, after visiting the registration page and reading more infromation, please email Victoria at email@example.com.
"I find it so special that I am able to share such a unique experience with my younger sister, who has sailed with me on Alumni sails as well as completed more than one SEA Semester trip herself! We first boarded the Cramer together on an Alumni sail to Dry Tortugas and my sister’s interest in SEA was instantly ignited. Many SEA Semesters later, I am so happy I took her on that first trip! Being at SEA is an incredible bonding experience with shipmates but even more so with a sibling. It's an amazing way for us to share and make even more memories through Alumni sails at SEA!"
