The Flaming Aces

Natalie Chiapperi, A-Watch, Ithaca College

Dutch Blitz: A high intensity card game of skill, speed, and sometimes plain luck (very similar to Pounce if anyone has ever played that). But this is not just a simple game of cards. It is a way for so many of us to come together, take a break, laugh and have a small bit of everyday land life brought onto the ship.

Steering by Stars

Ropes and lines cascade down from the top of the mast, to the end of the spreaders, and all the way down to the deck, adorning our ship like a spider web that’s been stretched across the rig.

The Haunted Ship

Cameron Gallant, A Watch, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Wow! The crew really went all out today to create a haunted ship experience for us. Complete with leftover ground sausage, beets, and ketchup over the victim and villain in the galley, screams, spooky lights, someone floating in a harness suspended from the ceiling (wow Ava!), and a lot of other hidden surprises.

Hi there! While the fore deck has become a waterpark ride, I am here to talk to you about something very important but not at all glamorous: being clean!

Hello from the middle of the ocean! Clearly we’ve been here for some time, but every time I walk on deck to realize we’re surrounded 360 degrees by only ocean, it hits different. You would think that I’d have my sea legs by now, but it still feels like every ladder I climb is fighting me and winning.

B-J-JWO

Arielle Landau, A Watch, Middlebury College

Today I was the birthday junior junior watch officer, as the plebs (or students) say. Officially, the title is junior watch officer, shadowing phase, but since it was my birthday and we like to get creative on the Robert C. Seamans, I was crowned the birthday junior junior watch officer (B-J-JWO).

Reflections on the Last Leg

(First and foremost: Happy birthday, Mom! I love and miss you so much!)

As the sun sets on day 32 of our voyage, I thought it was time to share some things I’ve learned (32 to be exact) while at sea that would be important information to anyone, oceanically inclined or otherwise.
