Happy Thanksgiving everyone! My name is Sabrina Sorace, I’m currently a junior at Eckerd College studying marine science. The Cramer has been underway for four days so far and, to be honest, it was rough for the first three days.

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.

Amelia’s First Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from the Robert C Seamans! As we sailed into the morning we knew it was going to be a great day given that for the very first time on our cruise the square sails, course and tops’l, were set! With the north winds at our backs these sails helped inch us closer and closer to our next port stop in Napier.

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.

Welcome to our second day underway! We are currently on a course from St. Croix to Grenada, which should take about six or seven days. We are heading generally southeast, though the strong easterly winds prevent us from going directly towards our destination.

Rocking and Rolling

Rachel Clausen, Salisbury University

Hello everyone on land! This is Rachel J. Today started off pretty rocky as I was shaken awake at 0100 by some big swells. They sent everything flying: me, my stuff, and even fish (two flying fish jumped up on board during dawn watch). I eventually was able to get back to sleep, only to be awoken a few hours later at 0600 for morning watch.

Well hello there, land people! You’ve guessed it. It’s me, Maia. Today A watch woke up at 0600 for breakfast to start the day off with morning watch (0700-1300). After a not so good night of sleep from a lot of rocking, my mood was quickly turned around when I realized I was in lab!
