SEA Currents: galley

Once in a Lifetime
And so as quickly this trip began, it ends. With the ship back in harbor right where we set sail from five weeks ago at a glance it can seem like we never left. Thankfully, we still have the memories, photos and friendships left over to remind us of this amazing experience.

The sea is calm tonight. The tide is full, the wind lies fair. Steady constellations are illuminated from the dark night. Nikumaroro looks like the island paradise that as a girl I dreamed of living on. Uninhabited, a place all your own, to live with nature and create the world you want.

Notes from the galley, and other reflections…
I was supposed to be assistant steward the very first day on the boat, but since everything was chaos and all of the students, including myself, were still trying to find their sea-legs, I missed my chance. After weeks of waiting, the opportunity finally came again

Bread on the Boat
There’s a lot of smells that happen on a sailboat, out in the middle of the ocean, with 35 people packed aboard like sardines. Salt and sea air, that’s pretty nice.

An Unexpected Community
What can I say except life is good on the Robert C. Seamans. Yesterday during our watch we hit 2000 nautical miles, we experienced the best sailing onboard yet-beating the trip record for distance sailed during a single watch with 35 nautical miles in 6 hours, and it was a full moon. I think A-Watch has finally relaxed from the mainstays’l tear and main boom snapping, both on our watch, literally.

Kevin’s Galley Day
The cooking prowess of our one and only Kevin Johnson is no secret aboard the Robert C. Seamans, as members of C house onshore got to experience firsthand. However, over the past few days, there have been murmurings aboard that Kevin would not get his galley day and would therefore not be able to bless us with his culinary genius.
