At Anchor (Not Much Longer!)

Good afternoon from all of us aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer! Today is an exciting day. Although we have been anchored for our first few nights of the cruise, we anticipate to be underway in a few hours.  This means that everyone on the ship, such as the professional crew, students, and scientists will be working diligently to keep us afloat and safe until we finally set anchor at Grenada in the Caribbean after 2000 miles of sailing upon the open ocean.

At journey’s end

Muscongus Bay, Saint George River, Maine - After making our way north to Maine, we anchored at Muscongus Bay Monday evening.  Through the night, we kept short anchor watches, which meant we also were able to catch some extra sleep.

Williams-Mystic F18 enjoyed warm temperatures, calm seas and light winds for the first part of our offshore field seminar,  but as we head north the air is getting a little chillier and the wind is expected to pick up a bit.  With 15 knot winds expected, the students learned to reef the mainsail during our afternoon nautical class.  After reefing, more jackets and hats came out, and it’s starting to feel like fall.

Williams-Mystic F18 has quickly adjusted to shipboard life and the rhythm of standing watch, classes, meals, and sleeping.  For example, today “A Watch” had the morning watch.  The morning watch included a science Super Station dedicated to collecting water and data from the surface down to the seafloor of southern George’s Bank.

Swim call!

We’ve reached the second Sunday of our voyage on C279, but have a few more sailing days to go until reaching our final destination in Woods Hole. The weather last night was squally and the students had the chance to see one of our least-set sails, the storm trysail, in action. Thankfully, the squalls abated by morning into a beautiful, sunny day.

A “mini-mate” morning

Alondra & Sarah

At a crisp 06:20 in the morning Alondra and I awoke to the sweet chiming of the breakfast bell. As we struggled to exit our bunks, the sleep in our eyes began to fade, and with each bite of the sticky warm banana bread, we became more and more ready for the watch that was to come.
