While most of her classmates are at home diving into a traditional turkey dinner, Madeleine King ’19 is having quite a different Thanksgiving experience—doing environmental research aboard a tall ship, in New Zealand.

After six weeks of onshore preparation in the US, King and her fellow students joined the SSV (student sailing vessel) Robert C. Seamans—described by SEA as a “state-of-the-art 134 foot brigantine”—in Auckland, New Zealand on November 12, 2017 to begin a six-week voyage.
