Yesterday afternoon, students arrived in Auckland and boarded the Robert C. Seamans for the commencement of our S283 Global Ocean New Zealand program.

Upon the Corwith Cramer, community is key. There are twenty-nine of us aboard, each one equally responsible for the health, happiness, and general well-being of the others.  One must always stow their gear neatly, brush their hair on deck, and bid their thanks to the day’s dish-doer.

Grey Skies and New Hats

Adrienne Wilbur, 2nd Mate

Early November. At home frosts and cold rains, deer wandering down to the beach to eat seaweed if snow in the mountains covers their usual browse. Grey skies, and seas. Grey days.

I feel extra at home on the Corwith Cramer today as overcast skies and periodic squalls bring that early November southeast Alaska feel to the tropical Atlantic, albeit 50 degrees warmer.

When in Doubt, Label

Tyler Barron, Sailing Intern


For most people, I would argue that it’s not everyday one interacts with a space in which everything is in its right place and put there in a specific way. The gravity of this noticing may feel a bit heavier in light of my current living patterns (which may not be the tidiest or most organized), however, it’s become quite evident that nautical life consists of and necessitates certain relationships with the objects (especially the massive one you are living on and riding across the ocean) by which you are surrounded.

Sayonara Mama Seamans

Therese Ohman, B-Watch, Suffolk University


We did it. S-282 is in Auckland! The only thing crossing my mind is how did it end so quickly?! Last week on the boat our Professor, Jeff, said in just a week we will be on land again and everything will be different and just like that, it was.

Hi everyone!

I am happy to have the opportunity to write again for the blog. We have had beautiful days as we officially are sailing in tropical waters and getting closer and closer to the Caribbean.

Skills, Useful and Otherwise

Glenn Billman and Cam Chertavian, B-Watch, Northeastern University and Bowdoin College


Greetings loved ones. Let’s take a journey. I… know a place… where the grass is really greener. Oh oh!

Just kidding. That’s the start of a Katy Perry song. And this is the S-282 blog post! Haha.

The End is Nigh

Malika Elizabeth, B-Watch, The Evergreen State College


This morning started with the sun shining its beautiful rays on the South Pacific Ocean. It was a glorious sight. B-Watch was just finishing up dawn watch and for the second half I had the opportunity to be Junior Watch Officer.
