SEA Currents: SSV Corwith Cramer

Carla Szeplaki, Eckerd College


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

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! My name is Sabrina Sorace, I’m currently a junior at Eckerd College studying marine science. The Cramer has been underway for four days so far and, to be honest, it was rough for the first three days.

Learning those Lines

Emily Klimczak, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry


Today was a very early morning for A watch! We had the night shift, so we were watching over the ship from 1900-0100 (or 7 pm on Tuesday to 1 am on Wednesday). I was in the science lab for this watch. First we completed a 100-point count.

Jemma Dickson, College of the Atlantic


On Monday we set sail from the Christiansted pier in St. Croix, USVI! The night before, we were all woken up every hour in pairs or triples to do a boat check so we could get in the habit of performing this critical task.

Our First Squall!

Rikki Borkowski, Colgate University


Welcome to our second day underway! We are currently on a course from St. Croix to Grenada, which should take about six or seven days. We are heading generally southeast, though the strong easterly winds prevent us from going directly towards our destination.

Greg Wisener, Captain


Ahoy Dear Reader! We find ourselves in fine weather a day’s sail south of the Virgin Islands and already immersed in a glorious world of oceanic wonders! On Monday, we sailed along the north coast of St. Croix under topsail and staysails as the sun sank below the horizon.

Liz Harris, Missouri State University


Hi everyone! I am Liz Harris, a junior studying wildlife biology at Missouri State University (GO BEARS!).  I hope those back home can see how much fun we are having here in St. Croix from the blogs and, if not, I promise it is a lot.

Valeriia Vakhitova, Middlebury College


Hi! My name is Valeriia and I am a Russian (Vladivostok) student from Middlebury College. Since Vermont is land-locked, applying for SEA semester was exciting! I haven’t felt bored for a second during this program. In this blog, I will write in both English and Russian, as I would love for my mom to understand it too.

Julian Scent, College of the Atlantic


Howdy, my name’s Julian. I’m part of the C-289 class like almost everybody else who’s will write on this blog in the next couple months. I’m a senior at College of the Atlantic, and I’m originally from Georgia. So, let me tell y’all about last Wednesday.


Students of Class C-289, Caribbean Reef Expedition, an investigative science and policy semester examining the impacts of human actions on Caribbean coral reef ecosystems and the effectiveness of existing reef management strategies, join the SSV Corwith Cramer in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, on Nov 24th after a ten-day second shore component there. Their voyage ends on Dec. 23rd in St. Croix after stops in Grenada, Montserrat, and Barbuda.
