SEA Currents: Aug 2019

From copepods to coconuts

The waves have been getting rougher and rougher the past couple of days, approaching the heights they were in the beginning of the trip. The Easterly Winds are steadily pretty strong at around a force five, helping to build the swells. A watch had dawn watch this morning, Michelle, Silas and I were in lab.

Happy Birthday Marco!

Erin O’Donovan & Erik Geertsma, Hastings High School & Easthampton High School

SEA Semester

With our days at SEASCape dwindling, we started our last academic day with our oceanography class on student chosen topics such as deep sea creatures and climate science. Our next class was Ocean and Society, where we learned about the Disney movie Moana and the history behind the film.

Last Day of Sailing

We woke up well rested on the Corwith Cramer, after just finishing a night of hourly anchor watches. A yummy breakfast of over-easy eggs, bacon and potatoes was waiting for us on the table in the main saloon, and then B watch took control of the boat for the next 6 hours.

Returning Home: Reflections of our I-Kiribati Observer

Miita Ribabaiti, Observer

Today’s blog is written by our I-Kiribati observer, Miita. In addition to his role as observer for the government of Kiribati, he has been participating fully in the student experience, beginning with classes in Woods Hole in June.

Living on the boat was very good since it was very comfortable in terms of taking shower in anytime you want. Food was good I like the food so much since I taste food that I never taste before and beside that we ate more a lot of vegetable on this boat. Sleeping was really good and I sleep well in my small bunk. This boat was very clean boat because we do a lot of cleaning on this boat and I love cleaning because I want to live in a clean environment. Those things are very cool to me since sailing in the ocean in a long time with that kind of exciting condition make me happy.

Only one more day of classes

Gwen Roode & Elaina Berdyck, Homeschool & Mount Lebanon High School

SEA Semester

Today was a rainy day full of class for the SEASCape students. We woke up to a breakfast of pancakes and apples, and the rain started just before our first class. Three speakers came in during Oceanography for career day.

At a Crossroads

Jason Gonsalves, B Watch, University of Redlands

The image attached to this post is what led to the concept of this piece, and truly has left me at a crossroads. We just left Nikumaroro a few days ago, and I’m still wrestling with the idea that our return to Pago Pago (and effectively back home) is imminent.

The long awaited whale watch

Bronwyn Addy & Jaffir Wajahat, Grosse Pointe South High School & Greens Farms Academy

SEA Semester

We started off our day this morning early with some cereal and coffee to wake us up and prepare us for the eventful day ahead. After packing up our bags for the day trip and putting on sunscreen we were ready to depart for our whale watch in Plymouth. Sadly, that same morning, was also the time our good friend and classmate, Diego, had to leave for Illinois for All States a week before the end of SEASCape.

Land Ho!

Natalia Sawicka & Zeke Flores, A Watch

width="650"

A Watch started the day off with only a few hours of sleep due to being on evening watch and being relieved at 0100. We were all exhausted but got to see some pretty neat bioluminescence and a stunning night sky! Upon waking up, many of us were fairly shocked to discover that we could finally see land (Cape Ann) from the deck.

One month at sea

Delaney Swann, C Watch, Boston University

It’s hard to believe an entire month has passed since the students of S- 287 landed in Pago Pago and boarded the ship that is now our home for the first time. It’s even crazier to think about coming ashore in just 8 days, and being a world away from these islands, which are some of the most beautiful and amazing places in the world.

Tie dye day!

Cece Dunham & Claire Cohenuram, Wahconah Regional High School & Fairfield Warde High School

SEA Semester

Today was a non-academic day, so it was full of so much fun. Some of us got up this morning at nine to make ice cream in B house, but others slept in till ten. We then had a delicious brunch of eggs, bagels, bacon, potatoes, and fruit salad. After cleaning up from brunch we began our next exciting activity of the day, TIE DYE!
