C-285 students are all aboard and ready to depart for the high seas!  The full ship’s company have spent the past day and a half preparing for the voyage, orienting themselves to safety, lab operations, sailing, and life aboard their new 134-ft drifting home away from home.  We’ll set sail tomorrow on our voyage through the Sargasso Sea from Key West, FL, to Bermuda, to New York City.

ALUMNI IN ACTION:  Meet Seth Garfield

Doug Karlson, communications@sea.edu

SEA Semester

As a third-generation resident of Cuttyhunk and an aquaculture pioneer, Seth Garfield, W-23, has made a career on the water and he credits SEA Semester for much of his success.

An active member of the SEA community, Seth’s involvement began in 1975, when he enrolled in SEA Semester as a senior in high school.  He was the youngest in the class—most other students were juniors from Cornell University. His captain was John Metcalfe, and the first mate was Wallace Stark. Wallace went on the sail many voyages as SEA Captain and, as Marine Superintendent, led the design and construction of the SSV Corwith Cramer.

THE VIEW FROM ALOFT: Spring Improvements to Woods Hole Campus

Jim Moynihan, Shore Facilities Coordinator

SEA Semester

As I write this, spring is just around the corner. You would think that the cold, winter months are the not-so-busy-time for SEA’s shore facilities coordinator. On the contrary! I may not be out and about as much, but my days are filled with planning and coordinating our much-needed springtime maintenance activities. I’m fortunate this year to have a six-week window of opportunity to get some larger improvement projects done that would otherwise interrupt student life here on campus.

After six weeks together and 2139 miles sailed, SEA Semester Class C-284 has come to a close.

One thousand nine hundred and ninety eight nautical miles, one thousand five hundred and thirty six eggs, and over eight hundred cookies later we have arrived at the end of our voyage.

This day has been a whirlwind of emotions and envirox as we spent our final day aboard the Seamans.
