“Adventure on the high seas”
by Shannon Flynn, The Andover Townsman | Aug. 13, 2015
Emily Callan, an Andover High School graduate, has served many positions aboard the SSV Robert C. Seamans from assistant steward in the galley to helmsman. But her favorite, she says, is lookout.
“When you are on lookout, you stand at the bow with the winds in your face keeping an eye on the horizon for any signs of other ships or incoming squalls. Most of the time, you are the only one out there which makes it very peaceful,” she wrote in a blog post from July 14.
The 21-year old, University of South Carolina senior is aboard an eight-week voyage to the Phoenix Islands where she and 21 other students are studying the remote area of the Pacific Ocean.
