SEA Currents: SSV Corwith Cramer
May 12, 2018
Last Day in Bermuda
Docked in St. George’s, Bermuda
Light winds, clear and warm
Today is the last full day that we spend in Bermuda and we spent a lot of it getting Mama Cramer clean and beautiful, so she can carry us to New York tomorrow. With time throughout the week to explore Bermuda, I was able to converse with many locals about their ideas on the current states of the ocean and what they think about current policies. It was quite refreshing to see how aware and concerned people were about the health of our oceans. Although, there are some people who are only concerned with the more coastal waters, awareness is still a start towards healthier oceans.
We've been docked since Monday and I am surprised that I actually miss being in the middle of the ocean. I am so excited to start deploying science gear again and looking at our data! We only have 10 more days to enjoy the beauty of the ocean, the sleepless nights due to the unpredictable wave height, the sunrise/sunset on the horizon, and the rare moon bows! During the late dawn watches and constant working, I didn't notice how lucky we actually are to be able to sail and learn so much in only a few weeks. We can actually navigate across the ocean comfortably and confidently (I still find that unbelievable). I have learned more about myself and turned many weaknesses into strengths in only 25 days on living on the boat. I can't wait to see what the next leg of our journey has in store! To see nothing but the ocean around you is truly a privilege.
