SEA Currents: Corwith Cramer
June 30, 2016
Hello C-267 friends and family - we have safely arrived in Cork, Ireland.
Yesterday we approached the coast and anchored in Cobh, just southeast of Cork. While anchored our ship's company cleaned the Corwith Cramer to make her more presentable for arrival to our final destination.
Today, we transited the River Lee and tied up to the pier in Cork. Once moored, we cleared immigration and met with our ship's agent to facilitate the countless details that are required for a ship visit to a foreign port. Meanwhile, students packed their bunks and got themselves ready for final "swizzle" or our celebration of the voyage's end.
It has been a great voyage and I am really proud to see the progress everyone has made during these past few weeks as we crossed 3,000 miles of ocean as a small community. Even better, the sun came out just after we arrived! I can tell the students are sad to see the voyage end, but are eager to share stories with their loved ones. But in the meantime they will enjoy one last evening as a ship's company before parting ways in the morning.
Thanks for reading!
