A Beautiful Morning for Science (and whales)

Davi Bendavid, A Watch, Colgate University

This morning when I opened my eyes in my cozy bunk after being woken by Colin at around 0600, I was extra eager. A Watch was assigned to the 0700 to 1300 shift, and I was assigned to be in lab.

Dawn Watch

We were awoken by the calming voice of Giovanni Vigilante at 0030. After scrambling our way into the usual five layers of clothing, topped off by our foul weather gear and trusty harnesses, we headed up to the deck to join the rest of B watch and begin the Dawn Watch.

The familiar hum of the motor suddenly dropped in pitch quite audibly. As my brain started to turn on, I noticed the familiar “chirp” from below my bunk pinging off more rapidly than usual. Upon opening my eyes, the light shining through the porthole confirmed my suspicions.

A Shift in Fortunes

Colin Jones, C Watch, Colgate University

A sailor’s life and livelihood are inextricably tied to the weather; the winds and waves can make or break a voyage. From the very moment we set foot upon the deck of the Cramer, that fact has been apparent.

Away We Go

Early this morning, we helped to set the sails and prepare to reel in the anchor. Though we are all still inexperienced, it’s so thrilling to know that we’re genuinely contributing to the success of the ship’s voyage.

Stanford@SEA: A Day in the Life of Nate Marshall

Nate Marshall, Stanford

Dawn watch is delightful delirium. It is less quiet than I expected, punctuated by the slap of the swell on the iron hull and calls of “Lance on deck! Mica below!” from the quarterdeck. But these sounds fail to deny the night its tranquility. A waxing half-moon shattered on the azure sea.
