Greetings from the SSV Corwith Cramer.
October 09, 2019
The gap-year students of Class C-288, Atlantic Odyssey, join the SSV Corwith Cramer in Woods Hole on Oct. 11 for a long, blue-water passage south, ending in St. Croix, USVI, on Nov. 18, after stops in Dominica and St. John.

Dear Friends and Family,
We sailed offshore yesterday and all night, having spent two nights at anchor off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard. From the deck, we could see the village of Menemsha, home to the Vineyard’s last fishing fleet and one of the main shooting locations for “Jaws.”

Dear Friends and Family,
It’s Thursday evening, and our journey offshore is nearing its halfway point. Over the last day, we’ve passed Georges Bank, the historic cod fishing grounds east of Nantucket, and are currently sailing across the northern end of Gilbert Canyon, just east of Oceanographer Canyon, neighboring features of the North Atlantic floor that only seem to have been named for Williams-Mystic oceanographer Lisa Gilbert. (Anyone following along from home can find us by tracing a line east from Asbury Park, NJ.)

Dear friends and family,
It’s Tuesday evening, and we’ve been underway for almost twenty-four hours aboard the Sailing School Vessel Corwith Cramer. We’re deep in the Gulf of Maine, well out of sight of land, east of Skate Bank and Newfound Ground.

Not everyone wants to be woken up at 0100 to hear that there’s a major thunderstorm outside and they are going to stand in it for the next six hours, but that was the fate of B Watch this morning. Items you might want during a thunderstorm include, but are not limited to: rain boots, rain pants, rain jacket, hat, gloves, and a midnight snack, preferably consisting of marshmallows, chocolate, and a little bit of love from our awesome stewards (Marie and Cody).

We woke up well rested on the Corwith Cramer, after just finishing a night of hourly anchor watches. A yummy breakfast of over-easy eggs, bacon and potatoes was waiting for us on the table in the main saloon, and then B watch took control of the boat for the next 6 hours.

A Watch started the day off with only a few hours of sleep due to being on evening watch and being relieved at 0100. We were all exhausted but got to see some pretty neat bioluminescence and a stunning night sky! Upon waking up, many of us were fairly shocked to discover that we could finally see land (Cape Ann) from the deck.

High winds in the morning sped the ship up to a swift 5.4 knots, a refreshing wakeup for C Watch after a good night’s sleep. B watch took the deck at 0700 after a hearty breakfast of eggs and chocolate chip pancakes. B watch started the day with a science station at the Wilkinson Basin, deploying the CTD to a depth of 200 m – our deepest drop yet! Data was processed by C Watch in the afternoon.

B Watch got a lazy start to the day after a night watch from 1900 to 0100. Many of us slept through breakfast and woke up with a little time to hang out on deck together before going to lunch. We finished off a very delicious lunch of couscous with sweet potato and tahini sauce and grabbed our harnesses to go on watch.
