I’m On A Boat!
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.

As demonstrated by today’s blog title, this morning started off with something very exciting: bagels!!!

Two nights ago I did not sleep well. Around 0230, I first awoke to the sound of the port jib sheet winch being cranked away on, we were gybing. I could feel the heel of the boat increase and then I heard light rain hit the deck. I lay there thinking about our arrival to Dominica and the excitement of coming up on deck in a few hours and seeing land, smelling land, hearing land.

How do you Summarize a Life Time?
Hello! My name is MJ Fernandez and I am the teaching fellow for C-290 and today I have been tasked with what I would consider trying to summarize a lifetime. The students often mention this, but on program especially when we are out sailing time becomes very abstract.

A giant, goofy family
Although my name is Courtney, I now respond to “Beans” and “Beenzie” too. There’s a long story as to why, but it is one of the many examples of how the Cramer has made everyone act as a giant, goofy family. While other blogs have talked about the ins and outs of watch, meals, and bunks, I want to talk about the entertainment, in both its goofy and familial forms.

Studying or Snorkeling?
Today we all said ‘goodbye’ to Corwith Cramer. I could see her proudly standing in the golden waters of St. Croix from the window of my plane: that was my last sunset with her. I believe not a single person remained unchanged through the program. But it might be a little too early to see the difference yet.

The Island Life
Ahoy and land ho from Grenada! My name is Dan Karparis and I am currently a junior at the University of Maine in Orono, where it is most certainly not 29°C and sunny, sorry not sorry. I am currently writing this blog for December 3rd in the library of the SSV Corwith Cramer on December 4th at around 2100 (only eight hours after leaving the beautiful and friendly island of Grenada).
