32 Things to Know Before Going to Sea

Olivia DeWitt, B Watch, University of Denver


As the sun sets on day 32 of our voyage, I thought it was time to share some things I’ve learned (32 to be exact) while at sea that would be important information to anyone, oceanically inclined or otherwise.

Phase Change!

Alicia Pane, B Watch, Middlebury 2023.5


Life on a tall ship is very different from life on land. Everything is always moving, you sleep at the weirdest times, and six meals a day is totally normal. However, at just over two weeks in, the Cramer feels like a home and all these eccentricities feel as though it is just how life is meant to be.

Loving Life at SEA

Frederik Hoffmann, C Watch


These past couple of days has shown all of the Ship’s company exactly what the ocean has to offer. From a storm that forced us into hiding and made Cap stay up all night (poor guy) to the beautiful deep blue waters of the North Atlantic.

A Super Science Station Morning

Sarah Acker-Krzywicki, A Watch


As I rose from my nest (aka my bunk) this morning, the smell of warm zesty muffins wafted my way. I climbed up the ladder to lab approximately 30 minutes after breakfast to begin morning watch from 0700-1300. After turnover, the A watch lab crew for the day (Jordan 2nd scientist, Riley sailing intern, and I) realized we had a nice busy day ahead of us.

New Friends in Suva


Yesterday morning began bright and early for A watch, as we stood watch on our short journey into the port of Suva, Fiji. After a brief motor-sail from our anchorage to the mouth of the harbor, we were met by a Fijian pilot who helped guide us through the fringing reef into the safe and sheltered harbor.
