“Transatlantic” Wins Top Honors at Film Festival

Doug Karlson,

SEA Semester


His documentary, “Transatlantic, A Voyage of Discovery,” about last summer’s SEA Semester voyage from Woods Hole to Ireland, has won the Feature Grand Prize at the International Maritime Film Festival.  The festival celebrates the heritage, spirit of adventure, and ingenuity of maritime pursuits.

The 38-minute film follows the students of SEA Semester class C-267 as they challenge themselves in an epic adventure, and forge lasting bonds as shipmates on a lengthy and inspiring ocean passage.

The documentary will be screened at the film festival in Bucksport, Maine, on Saturday, Sept. 30, at 10 am.  There will also be a Q & A with the filmmaker, Chris Nolan, at 2:10 pm.

Tickets may be purchased at the festival website.

Cramer Yard 2017

Greetings from Belfast! The action continues as the Cramer crew works hard to put the boat back together. It’s been a busy busy week, so here is a quick run-down of a few of the things happening here in yard!

In engineering, the deck generator is getting reinstalled, and the plumbing in the galley is being redone. Kelly is also working on the refrigeration systems on board, and dry stores is being repainted.
