C283 Caribbean Reef Expedition - Fond Farewells

Douglas Nemeth, Captain

width="600"

Coming in, secure in the harbor as we are now, generates a comfortable feeling for mariners. We are no longer subjected to the whims of the ocean, the motion of the vessel and other associated voyaging challenges.

Too Much to Say

Ale Tejeda, Colorado College

I began to write this multiple ways. This beginning paragraph I write the dawn of the 22nd, having watched the orange moon set and the sun slowly become lighter, because I needed to take pause last night. I have so many tangents running in my mind, so many things I want to say about today, yesterday, and every day since I showed up late one night in Woods Hole that I can’t keep them straight and my tired eyes are making matters more blurry.

A heartfelt thank you to Cramer, her crew, and old man Neptune for a successful and safe voyage thus far. A sincere thank you to all hands, especially the students, for their tireless efforts in the water during the many snorkel surveys and their meticulous efforts afterwards ensuring the quality of our datasets!

Two Weeks Before the Mast

Lauren Zike, Web & Print Coordinator, S-184

As an alum of SEA Semester from more years ago than I’d like to admit, I’m passionate about the value of the experience. I’m part of the Admissions & Marketing team for Sea Education Association and my role focuses on maintaining the website, creating print materials, posting to social media and managing the digital marketing.

Avoid the Fire Coral!

Wakeups for Echo at 7 am, I think, but my alarm clock always knows when to wake me up, aka A watch. Eyes are open and at this point, I am surrounded in my cozy bunk, wondering what’s outside my curtains

Science and Data, Data and Science!

Mahalia Dryak, Reed College

I really can’t believe it is December. Growing up in Wisconsin I got used to snow and negative temperatures in the winter. Going to school in Oregon I got used to chilly rain. But I have never experienced a December with clear blue skies (minus the squalls) and temperatures fit for shorts and tank tops.

Coral Reefs and Shifting Baselines

Ryanne Murray, Eckerd College

width="533"

This morning we anchored in Tobago Cays and prepared for our first survey off the Cramer. The area that we decided to survey is in a Marine Protected Area (MPA) in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Eager to get in the water after a couple of days at sea we all shuttled into the small boats and headed towards the reef.

Jump In With Both Feet

Sean S. Bercaw, Captain

width="600"

Evening twilight approaches.  We are close-reaching under Main, Main Staysail, Fore Staysail, Jib and Jib Topsail (affectionately known as the JT), steering SSE in the light Force 3 (7 - 10 knots) Easterly Trade Winds. The students are getting their sea-legs on this first day underway, adjusting to the ‘motion in the ocean.’

This must be the place

Ale Tejeda, Colorado College

If you’ve read all of our posts diligently, you may have noticed that we students have become much more than classmates. We often revel in the miracle of having met, wondering what it would’ve been like if we had chosen a different SEA program, or chosen a different way to spend this semester altogether.
