SEA Currents: SSV Robert C. Seamans
May 23, 2016
S-267 Pacific Reef Expedition begins!
The Sailing School Vessel Robert C. Seamans is gracefully secure alongside the dock Epi Sud 4, Papeete Harbor, Tahiti, French Polynesia.
We are delighted to share that all hands are safely aboard, full of positive energy and ready to begin their academic adventure as crew members for our voyage - S-267 Pacific Reef Expedition.
Since May 10th the professional mariners have been working diligently aboard to provision and prepare the ship for our voyage in which we study and explore the unprecedented events unfolding across the central Pacific Ocean - the strongest El Nino event ever recorded (according to several different indices).
Our mission is to observe, document, and share what we learn with the rest of the world. This is an important responsibility that requires the diligence and dedication of each and every member of the crew. We wish you well as you stay-tuned, because we have much more to follow.
