Ship’s Heading & Speed
Dockside in San Juan, Puerto Rico

Sunny and very warm

We arrived in San Juan harbor early yesterday afternoon under light winds and calm seas, very different from the weather in which we had departed at the start of our voyage. The afternoon featured a field day to give our beloved Cramer a much-deserved cleaning, followed by a round of student research presentations on our quarterdeck classroom. The students did an excellent job with this, and it was exciting to see all that they had accomplished during the 10-day program. Then, after a delicious All Hands supper, we gathered for a final evening ‘swizzle’ to toast Neptune, give thanks for our safe passage, and enjoy some music, readings, and skits. The
students and professional crew maintained anchor watch throughout the night, so that everyone got a good night’s sleep in the calm and quiet of San Juan Harbor.

We made our way over to our San Juan dockage early this morning. After gathering for one last time on the quarterdeck to say our farewells, the Miami Ohio participants headed off to San Juan airport for their flights home. It’s always sad to see shipmates depart, and the Miami Ohio participants were an especially wonderful group to sail with. On behalf of all the SEA crew aboard, we thank each participant for their positive energy
and boundless enthusiasm, which made our C-270C voyage together such a tremendous success.

This type of program always makes students more practical in their field. Glad to know students enjoyed the entire voyage.
