SEA Currents: SEA Expedition
July 12, 2019
What a day! The first day is always packed full. There is so much to learn about our new home before our sailing/scientific mission can begin.

On behalf of Sea Education Association and the intrepid crew I am pleased to welcome aboard our new shipmates to the SSV Corwith Cramer! We spent a busy afternoon with both parents and their children touring the Corwith Cramer, but soon it was time for fond farewells and wishes of fair winds and a following sea.

Students currently aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer are enrolled in one of Sea Education Association’s high school summer programs, SEA Expedition. SEA Expedition is a field-based program in which students participate in every aspect of an offshore sailing and oceanographic voyage.

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.

Wind- healthy breeze
Hello friends and family!

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.
