SEA Currents: c256
The First Night, Field Trips & More
Hola, from Las Palmas! I have the distinct honor of writing the first student blog for this Atlantic Crossing. To get all our readers up to date, here’s what’s going on. We arrived in Las Palmas yesterday at 1500, made our way through the city, and all met onboard our home (for the next almost 6 weeks) - the SSV Corwith Cramer. We were organized into three Watch groups that include a mix of us students, an SEA scientist and mate, one of our scientific Voyagers, one maritime Voyager, and one sailing intern.
C256 Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean Begins
The students have all safely arrived to the ship, and ship safety and orientation is underway! With the Corwith Cramer tied securely to a dock in the heart of Puerto de Luz, the opportunities for observations related to Maritime Studies themes are endless. Facilities for the unloading and loading of container ships are busy with their work only a few hundred yards away while international, large-scale fishing boats are moored just north of us in one of the inner harbors of this extensive, highly trafficked port.
C-256: Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean
The students of C-256, Colonization to Conservation in the Caribbean, will join the SSV Corwith Cramer by Friday, November 14th. They will end their voyage around December 23rd in St. Croix.
