A Day of Necessities and Joy!

Ciara Olmstead, Mount Holyoke College

Today was a very early morning for A watch! We had the night shift, so we were watching over the ship from 1900-0100 (or 7 pm on Tuesday to 1 am on Wednesday). I was in the science lab for this watch. First we completed a 100-point count.

Setting Sail from St. Croix!

Jemma Dickson, College of the Atlantic


On Monday we set sail from the Christiansted pier in St. Croix, USVI! The night before, we were all woken up every hour in pairs or triples to do a boat check so we could get in the habit of performing this critical task.

Ahoy Dear Reader! We find ourselves in fine weather a day’s sail south of the Virgin Islands and already immersed in a glorious world of oceanic wonders! On Monday, we sailed along the north coast of St. Croix under topsail and staysails as the sun sank below the horizon.

Valeriia Vakhitova, Middlebury College


Hi! My name is Valeriia and I am a Russian (Vladivostok) student from Middlebury College. Since Vermont is land-locked, applying for SEA semester was exciting! I haven’t felt bored for a second during this program. In this blog, I will write in both English and Russian, as I would love for my mom to understand it too.
