Cloudy with a Chance of Squalls

On this lovely, squally Saturday, my day started dark and early at 0020 when I was woken for Dawn Watch.

Squalls, squalls, and… more squalls

Hello to all! We’ve had an interesting last 24 hours, especially on C Watch.

Between The Land And The Deep Blue Sea

Dawn watch often times is the state of slight delirium and unwavering turmoil; however on this particular morning its tempestuous nature was halted by the frenzied cry of “Land Ho!” Thirteen days we had not seen land, and the unlit horizon transformed into the refreshing glow of Turks & Caicos.

With each passing day the anticipation for the well-deserved “land ho!” grows greater as we come closer and closer to Turks and Caicos.

SEA Semester Overcomes Challenges To Launch Sea Program
The Falmouth Enterprise

The challenge was daunting, the outcome never assured, but on October 11 students enrolled in SEA Semester set sail from Woods Hole aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer.

The departure was the culmination of months of detailed planning and weeks of careful preparation on shore to ensure a safe and healthy educational experience. The ship is expected to arrive in Key West on Wednesday, November 18.

While the faculty, staff and crew at Sea Education Association are used to organizing ambitious sea expeditions, safely launching a program in the midst of a global pandemic meant navigating uncharted waters.

It’s crazy what a difference 12 hours makes. Last night when C Watch took the deck, menacing clouds loomed, lightening flashed and the engine roared as we motor-sailed into yet another squall. Gathering today for our pre-afternoon-watch-meeting, we searched in vain for a patch of shade in which to hide. We gybe, heave-to, set and strike sails on most watches.
