SEA Currents: Corwith Cramer

June 30, 2016

Arrived Cork!

The ship at anchor in Cobh

Cork, Ireland

Souls on Board

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!
Captain Chris

Hello and welcome to Cork!  I’m based near Dublin and am planning to sail out of Portsmouth for A Coruna in Spain at the end of August.  I’m currently looking for a sailing vessel which may be going from the east of Ireland to the south of England in late August to try to connect with my next trip.  I was wondering what your schedule is between now and then and if you take passengers.

Kind regards,

Thank you for getting our loved ones safely across the Atlantic. I have loved hearing some of the stories from Kaylie with more still to come I’m sure. Thank you so much for this adventure of a lifetime. She loved sailing!!!!!
