Heimoa Take Two/To Sea Once More

Hannah Moench, Sailing Intern

The time is 5:05, the wind is a brisk and warm call to sea, and a directly windward challenge to make it to Papaeete! We will be fighting a headwind for our miles today. I’m writing my blog early in anticipation of tossing some cookies to Neptune, but also looking forward to filling our sails and gettingunderway.

Although millions of people live less than a hundred miles away from it, very few people know about one of the largest canyons in the United States, Hudson Canyon. This amazing underwater landmark is located south east of New York City and is the largest marine canyon on the United Sates Atlantic Coast.  It supports a large array of organisms and has been nominated to be a National Marine Sanctuary.

The Local Scene

Woke up, poured a cup of coffee to the creak, creak. tap, tap.ruuuuuuub, of the oversized black rubber fender rubbing a nice mustache mark on our starboard side. As I went outside to the quarterdeck to check out the sunrise, I was greeted with rain coming sideways under the awning usually assigned to blocking the tropical sun.

Back to the Mothership

Rene Francolini, Visiting Scientist, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

There has been a photo of the Corwith Cramer in my room for the past 11 years. It has had a place in my childhood home, college dorm room, and even my current house. The form has changed overtime – at one point the 8x10 framed photograph was replaced by a 2ft x 3ft poster print, but the image has remained the same.

Celebrating Land

Adrienne Tracy, A Watch, Colby College

Today was the day many of us had been looking forward to since the first bouts of seasickness hit. We came into port and were able to go ashore. Now I don’t want to sound like I didn’t enjoy my time at sea. It was incredible and coming to land is a bitter sweet end to our voyage, but the sweetest part that we’ve all been missing is a particular creamy cold dessert.

Floating Lightning Rod and the Sea

Floating across the great blue, time flows a little differently here in our coconut life raft. At times it passes by slowly and at other times, all at once.

Clueless at Sea

Oleta Corry, B Watch

Greetings from one of the Voyagers aboard the Robert C Seamans.

We are very close to Ra’iatea and solid land now.  Don’t know if I can walk on land. Most of the time I cannot walk very well on the ship either, at least not in a straight line.  I am lucky enough to be what is called a Voyager on this adventure, so I get to look at this experience from a different angle. But from my observations all appears to be going very well.
