SEA Currents: SSV Robert C. Seamans

Field Day Fun

Today marks day two of our passage to Wellington. Despite the watch officer transition yesterday, things have been running smoothly and everyone is happily settling into life offshore once again.

Can Ya Gybe with it?

Today was day one of our 12-day sail from Russell down to Wellington.  The near future is both exciting and daunting as we will not set foot on land for the next two weeks or so.  With that being said, everyone is settling back into the groove of being on a watch schedule and adjusting well to life at sea after being anchored for two nights.

Exploring the Bay of Islands

Finally having a full day in port after a long week of learning the ropes (pun), the crew was ready to fill our one full day in the Bay of Islands with as much as we could before setting off on the long journey to Wellington. The day was to be separated into three main activities; a tour of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, “research time,” and dinner back aboard the Robert C. Seamans with important guests that were friends of Professor Jeff Wescott.

Land Ho!

Today marks a week on the boat and the first port stop! As of this morning everyone has fully adjusted thanks to the amazing crew and a finely tuned combination of acclimation and the occasional medication.

Present and In Awe

Nichole Padovano, C Watch, Boston University

Day four of sailing, and we’re already accustomed to life at sea! It took a few days for a couple of us to gain our sea legs, myself included. Some waves are bigger than others, and I definitely could feel the bigger waves. But now, the gentle rocking, the unbalanced moments, and everything else the Pacific has to offer us, can now be fully embraced.

Twenty-one

Ruby Dener, A Watch, Cornell University

A 21st birthday celebration on land is deceivingly similar to that underway. Full of well wishes, tasty cakes, reflection, and likely some vomiting. I began my morning with a watch shift, where we made sure the boat was safe and secure and that all was well as the sun rose.

The Ocean is Calling

Ana Schlanzky, A Watch, Cornell University

Only one day remains until we get underway! The excitement about setting off and going out to sea is becoming more tangible, as that time and date draws ever nearer.

After a wonderful night’s rest in our 6’ x 3’ x 3’ coffins (bunks), we woke up for an all-hands breakfast. Some more ship orientation occurred, and we cleaned the ship, with each watch group having a separate task. Amidst all the deluge of information, I keep asking our chief mate, Rebecca, about climbing aloft to the top of the mast. Unfortunately, that day will come much later.
