Approaching Nikumaroro with thoughts of Amelia Earhart

Mackenzie Meier, University of New Hampshire

width="600"

Amelia Earhart was from Atchison, Kansas; a hilly little town on the Missouri River, where they say she spent days looking out over the river and dreaming of flying. It’s also considered the most haunted town in Kansas but her final resting place - Nikumaroro—might be even more haunting.

Fun in Boston

Kat Seabury & Kaleigh Spencer, Norfolk Aggie & Northwestern Regional 7

SEA Semester

Today for our trip to Boston, we got up 30 minutes earlier to get ready for a 2-hour school bus ride. The first place we stopped at was the USS Constitution Museum. Here we learned about the vessel, and learned about its rich history.

A duty to protect

Charlie Schneider, A-Watch, Colorado College

We are now somewhere between 10 and 30 days into this journey. There’s no hope for me to pin down an actual number because time distorts itself in peculiar ways when 24 hour days rotate around 18 hour schedules. Each one of us has become familiar with the unusual rhythm of the vessel, and life at sea has become typical.

Beach Cleanup and Sample Collection

Grace Green & Ben Moya, Oregon Episcopal School &Teaneck High School

SEA Semester

First thing today we had a lesson on climate change and discussed on how it has changed the ocean and the environment. We also discussed the social and political impacts of climate change, we saw a documentary about the current disputes on the fishing and oil industries in countries including Norway, Ireland, and Canada.

Winslow Reef

Henry Bell, Policy Instructor

What’s this? We’re anchored? Is it another island stop? Not quite. A calm, empty, blue ocean still stretches from horizon to horizon, but nevertheless the Robert C. Seamans is rolling happily at anchor. Forty feet below the surface of the water, white sand and patches of coral are clearly visible.

Seasick

Aldin, Emma, C Watch

width="600"

Today, C watch was woken up at the tender time of 6:00, with the scents of breakfast sandwiches wafting through the lower deck. We were motor sailing from the Continental Shelf to the canyons, at a speed of 4.1 knots, over raging waves of 4-5 feet.
