I write to you from the main salon aboard Cramer. I’m sure many of you have read previous posts, so you know that we are headed East, struggling against the trade winds but nonetheless steadily chugging towards Martinique. This is Adelaide Gonzalez, of Bowdoin College, joined by my dear friend Natalie Rotondo, of the University of Rhode Island. We are two members of C watch, one of three watches that rotate around an 18-hour day, four-part cycle.

For us A Watchers, today marks our first completion of a full three-day rotation of our 6-12-6 hour sea watches aboard Cramer. As we settle into the new routine I’ve been clinging on to my circadian cycle for dear life; as you could probably guess, my efforts have been to no avail.

Coral counts are diminishing around the world. Here in the USVI, bleaching and disease has had a devastating impact on coral populations, especially the staghorn and elkhorn species of coral. In order to help reverse these disastrous effects, coral nurseries have started to be implemented.

Today was the last reef survey of our trip. While we will have other snorkeling occasions, this will be the last case where we are collecting the data for our papers.

Today was our first reef survey in St. Thomas. To be honest, I had to double check while writing this that we were actually in St. Thomas. We’ve done a lot of moving between bays and islands that they’ve started to get jumbled in my mind.

Remember remember! Too cliché for me to continue that bit even further. It’s November 5th, and today everyone has made sure I know the date with that funny limerick we can only remember four lines of.
