SEA Currents: SSV Robert C. Seamans

Staying Busy

Krista Norris, B-Watch, Sailing Intern

width="401"

Hello from somewhere in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean! We are at about the halfway point, and wow we are so busy! Our little world onboard the Robert C Seaman’s is always moving (in all ways imaginable). Students are busy with projects, crew are busy teaching (and with their own projects), and everyone is always busy learning.

My World is Sideways

Liz Leadley, B Watch, Olin College of Engineering

width="600"

Aboard Seamans, my world has been pretty thoroughly tilted, both literally and figuratively. On the literal side, the wave swells have been rolling the boat side to side nearly constantly, which makes standing up straight… an event. More figuratively, however, this ship has offered me a vastly new perspective for self-reflection.

Two-weeks down

Camille Ross, C Watch, Colby College

We have been on the Seamans almost two weeks. It is crazy how quickly the time is going by.  I have learned so much in such a short amount of time, and it has been so much fun.  It feels like we have been here so much longer than we actually have.

1000 Miles!

Tristan Feldman, 2nd Mate/Bosun

width="800"

Today marked 1000 miles sailed and we have made it far enough North that it has started to get warm. People are hanging out in t-shirts and shorts and the boat is alive in a way it hasn’t really been yet. The fore deck gym is in full swing, with people attempting to do as many push-ups as miles we’ve sailed.

We are going into our second week here on the Seamans since we left Lyttelton. But it feels like we have been here for months! I have learned so much and been tested in various ways already.

A Squally Day

Amy Mikolajczyk, C Watch, SUNY Maritime College

We’ve completed our first whole week at sea! And it was an 8 day week, since we also passed the International Date Line a couple days ago. We even had two Saturdays last weekend!

What a Day at Sea

Ally Nestler, C Watch, Warren Wilson College

width="800"

Well today was field day, and for all of you who instantly thought of elementary school races and water balloon fights, think again!  Field day is a day of cleaning the whole ship (which we do every day) but more!

Adrienne Tracy, A Watch, Colby College

Yesterday we left the Chatham Islands and our last sight of land for a while. We got to enjoy the calm seas in the port for a little while and we all got to sit up on deck and enjoy the sun! Some people even climbed up the foremast as we were leaving and got some great views of the islands.

Life at Sea!

Josie Sullivan, C Watch, East Carolina University

width="742"

We have now been at sea for four days! Everyone is starting to get in the swing of our watch schedules of 6 hours on and 12 hours off. Slowly but surely we are beginning to stop crashing into walls every second, hitting our heads everywhere we go, and learning how to not have everything spill off the rolling tables at meals.
