Cloudy with a Chance of Squalls

On this lovely, squally Saturday, my day started dark and early at 0020 when I was woken for Dawn Watch.

Squalls, squalls, and… more squalls

Between The Land And The Deep Blue Sea

Colm Blodget, A Watch, Gap Year Student


Dawn watch often times is the state of slight delirium and unwavering turmoil; however on this particular morning its tempestuous nature was halted by the frenzied cry of “Land Ho!” Thirteen days we had not seen land, and the unlit horizon transformed into the refreshing glow of Turks & Caicos.

Information Isolation

Sam Colt-Simonds, C-Watch


With each passing day the anticipation for the well-deserved “land ho!” grows greater as we come closer and closer to Turks and Caicos.

All In a Watch

Carolyn Vincent, C Watch, 2nd Mate


It’s crazy what a difference 12 hours makes. Last night when C Watch took the deck, menacing clouds loomed, lightening flashed and the engine roared as we motor-sailed into yet another squall.

Every Year a Trip South

Sophie “Süpi” Vallas, C watch, 2nd Assistant Scientist


It is currently my third year doing the trip south, each one has been to a different destination with a different crew, different set of students and different adventures. I only planned on going on the first trip south two years ago but have somehow managed to be on everyone since.

The Bermuda Triangle

Alexis Clements, C watch


As we prepare for Halloween, what better place to be but venturing into the Bermuda Triangle, a small portion of the vast ocean that captures many peoples amazement with all of the mysteries it holds.

Clouds and stuff

Max Rait, B watch, Michigan State University


I woke up this morning at around 9:30 and took a shower, which I thoroughly enjoyed after a few days of sweating in the hot sun and in the galley. I then went up on deck and walked straight to the doghouse, where I scrolled around on the GPS computer to check how far we had gone overnight.
