SEA Currents: c273

A Sea Tale
If you’ve followed along with the C-273 voyage thus far, or have at least read Yage’s post from yesterday, then you might know that the Cramer ran into a bit of rain last night. While Yage was fast asleep in bed, I was on evening watch (1900-0100). Today, the B Watch mate, Finn, told us a tall tale about past work on ships, which is the inspiration for this blog post. In Finn’s words, last night “Could have been worse.”

今天可能是在克雷姆（Cramer 船名）上最不平稳的一天了。凌晨的岗位（1:00-7:00）一直在用引擎来帮助前行。当我们上午的岗位（7:00-13:00）快结束 时，天空下起了小雨。我换下班来，吃完了美味的午餐，chili 和corn bread （各种 豆子做的汤和玉米面包），立刻钻进了我的床上，享受我凌晨岗位前的12个小时。

Having a Field Day!
Today we deep-cleaned the Cramer! Instead of having class in the afternoon, we split into watches and cleaned the whole below decks area. A Watch took the Galley, B watch took the Main Salon, and C watch took the aft cabins. We clean the Cramer thoroughly every day, because grime magically appears even when we’re at sea, but today we stepped it up a notch and got everything we might have missed during the week.

Cramer Gybes and Students’ First Dip Net!
After spending a few hours feeling nauseous at every trip below decks yesterday, it is amazing that I was able to spend most of my 6 hour watch as the dish assistant today in the galley! It feels great to (hopefully) be acquiring some sea legs, of course attributing most credit to medicine, a full belly, and a hydrated body. As a “newbie” aboard the Cramer, the crew is nothing but kind and positive.

Off to a great start!
Hello friends and family,
Today was an exciting day on board the SSV Corwith Cramer!
The day started bright and early with 6 am wake-ups for A watch and 6:40 am wake-ups for B and C watches, and it’s been a steady stream of new experiences and important training for the students-turned-crew of class C-273 ever since.
