Jump In With Both Feet

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

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.

Land HO! Sailing into Samana

Karen Lynch, B Watch, Knox College

Caribbean Study Abroad

Hello to one and all of you wonderful souls keeping up with the Cramer! Throughout this past week of sailing, I have experienced a seemingly endless array of blue skies, cumulous and stratus clouds, and constellations - of course with very slight interruption of squalls blowing through from time to time.

Welcome aboard!

Audrey Meyer, Chief Scientist, SEA

Penn State at SEA

Welcome to the SEA Penn State program blog! I am happy to report that all 24 Penn State participants (22 students, their professor Monica Medina, and TA Aki Ohdera) safely arrived in San Juan and boarded the Corwith Cramer at 1100 this morning.  After a quick muster on the quarterdeck for introductions, we transited the ship to a nearby anchorage in San Juan Harbor, blissfully leaving the noisy harbor behind. Orientation to the ship began almost immediately after anchoring and an All-Hands lunch.

Chris Nolan, Captain

The crew of the Corwith Cramer has arrived in San Juan to mark the end of SEA Semester’s first Caribbean Reef Expedition program.  All hands had a great time snorkeling and sailing in the waters of Grenada, St. Vincent, Montserrat, Antigua, Barbuda, and the USA.

Adventures in Barbuda

Camila Mirow, Mount Holyoke College

Caribbean Reef Expedition

Aboard the Corwith Cramer travelling by sea, her lovely crew and I have seen Grenada, Tobago Cays, Canouan, Montserrat, Antigua and Barbuda. This past month has been filled with countless adventures and breathtaking moments too profound to ever forget. The feeling of sailing in the dark on a moonless night is amazing.

Barbudaful

Steph Gorney, A Watch, Northeastern University

Caribbean Reef Expedition

Beside the Corwith Cramer, Barbuda stretches out- low-lying and tranquil, encompassing half the horizon. The water is the kind of clear aqua blue that you would expect to find on a brochure advertising some type of dream getaway; and the sun warms my skin as I lean into a wind that hasn’t seen humans since it left the Sahara Desert to blow across the Atlantic.

Deep Blue

Keiley James, B Watch, University of Georgia

Caribbean Reef Expedition

Hello from Antigua!

We arrived here early this morning, around 0800, after one day’s sail from Montserrat. As we steered into this bay, four ridiculously huge cruise ships pulled in as well, making our 134ft tall-ship look like a toy boat. While we waited for Captian Chris to clear us into customs, we watched these gargantuan boats pass us by, each carrying thousands of people.
