Sailing for Science!
What a whirlwind these past four days have been! We are in full swing now; Mama Cramer is under sail as we cruise past Eleuthera and into the open ocean. It is wonderful to see everyone becoming more familiar with her, getting the hang of very busy watch schedules and all the various tasks that must be performed to ensure that she is in true working ship shape.

I can’t believe we’ve only been at sea for three days! It seems like we’ve been out here a week already. I know it has been three days, because I got to take my first shower today-a bit of a celebration!

Off for the high seas!
C-285 students are all aboard and ready to depart for the high seas! The full ship’s company have spent the past day and a half preparing for the voyage, orienting themselves to safety, lab operations, sailing, and life aboard their new 134-ft drifting home away from home. We’ll set sail tomorrow on our voyage through the Sargasso Sea from Key West, FL, to Bermuda, to New York City.
