Anchors Aweigh and a Happy Birthday
After a calm night at anchor, we students were awakened bright and early at 0630 today, to the smell of a delicious breakfast (mmm, pancakes and bacon!) Over the next few hours, I learned more than I ever have in that span of time, possibly excluding yesterday’s orientation. Our orientation continued with the lab and engine room where, speaking as an engineering student, I can assure you there is an excellent and well-organized array of wrenches.

C-260 Gets Underway
Having completed their brief shore component at SEA’s campus in Woods Hole, the student crew of C260 boarded the SSV Corwith Cramer at 1400 this afternoon. After an initial round of watch meetings, we departed Dyer’s Dock at 1700 and headed over to Martha’s Vineyard. We are now anchored for the night in Vineyard Haven Harbor, with the lights of East Chop in clear view along the nearby shoreline.

WOODS HOLE — This village is no stranger to ships of all shapes and sizes on its waterfront. Barely anyone strolling down the street blinks an eye at ferry boats, deep-sea submersibles or Coast Guard cutters launching or landing from its docks.
But even for Woods Hole, the sight of a brigantine’s mast poking above the rooftops is far from an ordinary sight.
