Grapes in Peril

Natalie Greenbaum, UMass Amherst

Hello bloggies!

Natalie here from C Watch. Today was a wonderful day. We had some free time this morning to explore the art deco-d streets of Napier and do some laundry (yay!). Later in the afternoon, we went a winery and learned all about the effects of climate change on the winery industry.

The Island Life

Daniel Karparis, University of Maine Orono

Study Abroad at Sea

Ahoy and land ho from Grenada! My name is Dan Karparis and I am currently a junior at the University of Maine in Orono, where it is most certainly not 29°C and sunny, sorry not sorry. I am currently writing this blog for December 3rd in the library of the SSV Corwith Cramer on December 4th at around 2100 (only eight hours after leaving the beautiful and friendly island of Grenada).

On Shore in Napier!

After a restful night sleep at anchor my watch (B) and I arose at 0600 to a delicious breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and kiwi and to start to steer the boat into port! It was a pretty short drive as we anchored only about an hour and half trip away from where we were in port. It was an absolutely gorgeous morning and the ride over was super peaceful

Mandoo’s Friends

Greetings from C-289 in Grenada! We had an action-packed day going on a tour of the island! We started off our adventure with a stretching exercise led by Cody, our steward, in the marina parking lot. We then met our tour guide, Mandoo Seales, and boarded the air-conditioned van (emphasis on the air conditioning).

A Day of Necessities and Joy!

Ciara Olmstead, Mount Holyoke College

width="650"

Hi Folks! Greeting from the Corwith Cramer and Grenada. My name is Ciara Olmstead and I am a sophomore at Mount Holyoke College. I am on B Watch here on the ship, so I was not awake for our arrival in Grenada. I had been on watch from 1900 to 0100 the previous night, so I relished the opportunity to sleep in until 1030, a rare luxury.

Sådan en dag I December!

Amelia Ahring, B-watch, University of Copenhagen

1st of December always marks the beginning of a countdown: to Christmas, to New Years, to the end of this decade (!) and this time, to the end of our time at sea, SEA, and with each other. That makes this year’s countdown feel a little more bittersweet than usual, as we have only a couple of weeks left.

Whale of a Time

Maia Anderson & Mathilde Tash, A-Watch, American University & University of Rhode Island

What. A. Day. We had our first Field Day, but don’t be fooled by the title like we were. It’s a designated day of cleaning… everything. As A-Watchers, we had the pleasure of cleaning the galley. We scrubbed the galley from overhead to sole, but hey, we were able to listen to music for the first time in weeks.

Hello from the SSV Corwith Cramer! My name is Carla Szeplaki and I’m a senior at Eckerd College studying marine science. It is day 4 at sea on our way to the first port stop in Grenada. B Watch began the day after breakfast at 0700. I was assigned to the lab, where we had planned to deploy the Neuston net to collect surface samples, record hourly data on salinity and seawater temperature, and more. However, as it sometimes
