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 vsmith@sea.edu.

"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!"
