SEA Currents: SSV Corwith Cramer

Floating across the great blue, time flows a little differently here in our coconut life raft. At times it passes by slowly and at other times, all at once.

Hello everyone!

I am currently sitting in the hot (but cozy) library of the Corwith Cramer, looking back at the whirlwind of events that have happened over the past couple of weeks.

As we have departed Bermuda, we’ve welcomed aboard several new shipmates. B Watch has been lucky enough to gain two new members, Mary Ellen and Steve. We have also been joined by our final faculty member from Woods Hole, Porter. This means we’ve resumed policy lectures, which are done with each morning watch.

This morning we sailed from the Bermuda exclusive economic zone (EEZ) into the “area beyond national jurisdiction” (aka the “high seas”) in deepwater (about 5,000 meters) on the Cramer. Our progress is marked by twice-a-day collections of ocean water as well as surface and deep-ocean net tows.

Bread on the Boat

There’s a lot of smells that happen on a sailboat, out in the middle of the ocean, with 35 people packed aboard like sardines. Salt and sea air, that’s pretty nice.

“A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.”

It was a flurry of emotions as we prepared to enter the channel leading into the harbor this morning.

Life of a Sailor

Rose Edwards, B Watch, Sailing Intern

At the end of my SEA Semester trip when I was a student, I was voted “Most likely to become a Sailor” by my classmates. While not the only S-271 classmate to pursue tall ship life after SEA, the prediction has come true and over multiple trips and jobs I am becoming a Sailor with a capital S.

You know you have made some great life choices when your dinner is interrupted by a surprise whale watching session.

This was an idea given to me late last night while on watch, around 0010, by Betsy, a fellow C-watcher that will be greatly missed upon her departure in Bermuda!

Life at sea on the Corwith Cramer can often feel like a flurry of watches, food, and some sleep in between. Students are often seen flitting about between the lab, library, and the main saloon busying themselves with research work and nautical science assignments.
