SEA Currents: c259
When I was 18, I received my first cell phone. It was a fairly basic flip phone, but it had the essentials - you could actually call someone (lame), or text them (cool), which meant mashing at least a thousand buttons to spell out one medium-sized and predominantly misspelled sentence. “C u l8er” became a perfectly acceptable thing to say, and every self respecting purveyor of the English language collectively threw up. These were dark days.

SEA Semester® in the News: “Setting Sail for Science”
by Sheila Foran, UConn Today | June 29, 2015
For some, the words ‘study abroad’ may conjure thoughts of London or Paris or Tokyo. But for three UConn marine sciences students this past spring semester, it meant taking to the high seas aboard a sailing ship equipped with sophisticated research facilities.
SEA Semester Class Unveils Sargasso Sea Management Proposal
The 20 advanced undergraduate students of this year’s Marine Biodiversity & Conservation program recently completed a high seas management proposal for the Sargasso Sea, a North Atlantic region increasingly recognized for its strong ecological importance and economic impact.

What a Wonderful Day
Good evening! …Or rather, good morning!
This final blog at sea for Cramer class C-259 is being co-written by Anthony and Helena, who happened to be both the Junior Watch Officer and Junior Lab Officer in the same day. It is 0330 in the morning and we have now been up for 21 hours; we have had two standing watches since waking and, oh boy, what a wonderful day.
Am I a salty sailor yet?
Hello again, beloved landlubbers!
Several people have spoke already of the last phase of our time at sea, as we take on the roles of Junior Watch/Lab Officers (JWO/JLO)! I was the JWO for my evening watch last night, and never have I finished a watch so exhausted! Don’t be fooled by the relaxed attitudes of the mates, making it look so darn easy this whole time – commanding a ship is HARD work. There are a million things to remember and plan for and schedule and delegate, and a million corresponding ways to screw up.
Ocean Policy At Sea
As Marine Biodiversity and Conservation’s ocean policy professor, I joined the Cramer in Bermuda for some of the shore activities and to sail the second leg from Bermuda to New York. This is my first time aboard the Cramer (or any of SEA’s ships for that matter), and my first time on an ocean-going sail training ship in more years than I’d like to admit. Fortunately, my students, including Sabrina, Joe, Helena, Hannah, and Mareike, were a big help in showing me the ropes (literally!).
All of the things all of the time!
Hallo to my lovely family, frans, and foes back on land,
Kata here, bringing you the latest and greatest from the one and only S.S.V. Corwith Cramer! I have slept very little in the last 24 hours, so please forgive my silly grammatical errors and strange sentences. Since Lizzie didn’t really tell anyone about yesterday, I will try and cover two days in one sitting. This is a tale of JLO (not the one you’re thinking of), all of the lab work, and no sleep.
