To the Sargasso Sea we go!

Kerry Whittaker, Chief Scientist


Our first full day aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer with all 31 souls aboard! We spent a busy day getting oriented to the ship with safety drills and an introduction to life and operations on board. Tomorrow, SEA class C-279 will finally head to sea. We will depart the Bahamas on our way to Bermuda, and ultimately into New York City.
