We’ve reached the second Sunday of our voyage on C279, but have a few more sailing days to go until reaching our final destination in Woods Hole. The weather last night was squally and the students had the chance to see one of our least-set sails, the storm trysail, in action. Thankfully, the squalls abated by morning into a beautiful, sunny day.

At a crisp 06:20 in the morning Alondra and I awoke to the sweet chiming of the breakfast bell. As we struggled to exit our bunks, the sleep in our eyes began to fade, and with each bite of the sticky warm banana bread, we became more and more ready for the watch that was to come.

Greetings from the highest of seas! At the unfortunate hour of 0600 B-watch was jostled from their sweet dreams of riding off into the sunset aboard newly saddled whales to stand watch in the sweltering heat for 6 hours.

Today, C watch was woken up at the tender time of 6:00, with the scents of breakfast sandwiches wafting through the lower deck. We were motor sailing from the Continental Shelf to the canyons, at a speed of 4.1 knots, over raging waves of 4-5 feet.

We woke up this morning surrounded by a thick layer of fog. B Watch had the morning shift so we were all on deck early.

Hello, all! Last night, although anchored, we began having the students incorporated into their watch rotations. C watch had the dawn anchor watch and began getting comfortable with hourly boat checks/ weather and half hour anchor checks.

High school students enrolled in SEA Expedition 2 boarded the SSV Corwith Cramer in Boston Harbor on Saturday, where they spent their first night. They anchored in Nahant on Sunday and are currently under sail en route to Stellwagen Bank in search of whales. Stay tuned for updates from the students!
