The Folly of Foulies

Arielle Landau, A-Watch, Middlebury College

At the helm, the wheel jerking my arms along with the swells, I struggled to see the heading as rain sheeted sideways into my face, leaving only one eye functional. The dull red light that normally lights up the compass at night blocked by the rain drops resting on the top of the compass dome.

A gale during dawn watch: A harrowing adventure

Riley Palmer, A-Watch

I heard the tell-tale rustling outside of my curtain and the faint whisper signifying the start of my watch. I could already feel the cold permeating below decks as I quickly dressed in my many layers and foulies before heading upstairs to the dog house to read the night orders.

What a week! Having just finished an expedition to the earth’s newest landmass, Hunga Tonga - Hunga Ha’apai (HTHH) in the Kingdom of Tonga a few days ago, I thought I’d write a few thoughts on this latest expedition to Earth’s newest landmass.

Here’s to Challenging Ourselves!

Lila Glansberg, A-Watch, Sailing Intern

Study Abroad at Sea

Note: All aboard Cramer are well today, riding out the storm at anchor in the Sakonnet River. Their plan is to remain at anchor tonight and get underway for sea early Friday morning pending weather updates.


Hello, landlubbers!  This is Lila; a deckhand (sailing intern), SEA alum (shout out to S-278!), and overall wind enthusiast.  I was lucky enough to join the crew a day before we set sail.

Where Practice Makes Perfect

Michael Tirone, C-Watch, Bowdoin College

My digital Timex watch startled me as Tuesday turned to Wednesday and the 15th advanced to the 16th. I scanned attentively from the bowsprit for any boats or land masses lurking in the dark, partially aided by the sparkling lights scattered along the island walls astern.

Galley Magic

Kim Nutt, Steward

width="1500"

Hello all! Kim here from the galley of the SSV Corwith Cramer! The last few days have felt like a dream as we finally shoved off from Dyer’s dock and made it out into Vineyard Sound. My outstanding assistant steward (Sarah Witcher!), intern stewards (Jen, Justin, and Wika), along with countless other helpers and dish technicians, have made working in the galley a true joy!

Humbled

Jillian Galloway, C Watch, Bowdoin College

Spend a Semester at Sea

Hello!

Today, we departed Nuku’alofa under a hot afternoon sun and fair wind. The dock where the ship has spent the past few days moored is tantalizingly close to the outer islands and light green coral reefs, so to find myself traveling back onto greeny blue water is a long-awaited treat. It’s a tall order to report out all that I have experienced in the past week, so to sum it up I will simply say I am humbled.
