Much has happened for the Corwith Cramer and her crew over the weekend.  We shifted anchorages to Rendezvous Bay, held final Oceanography Presentations and celebrated everyone’s creativity with a Cramer Art gallery.  That was Saturday!

Snorkel Survey and Water Grubs

Natalie Summers & Ollie Downes

From beach to asphalt to jungle, within ten minutes we conquered all these elements on our way to the old sugarcane mill. The rotting wooden steps that we needed to traverse the hillside were the final obstacle in our way until we reach the old, run down entrance of our destination.

We’re moving towards the end, solidifying friendships, falling into easy routines, becoming confident and competent. More than skills and learning, our personhood is shining through, and as Megan mentioned at the end of our last watch, we are working towards bettering ourselves. Here we are:

First Taste of Land

Natalie Summers, B Watch

After weeks out at sea and a day anchored near shore, being enticed by the commotions and buzzles of land, today we would finally be able to taste the sweetness of land once again.

Ha Ha Moments

Lydia Wasmer, B Watch

There once was a land-lubber named Lydia who decided to join SEA’s new Gap Year program (Atlantic Odyssey) as a Residential Advisor and then aboard the Corwith Cramer as a Sailing Intern. After much residential advising, she decided that the sea would be a grand reprieve from the cumbersome land legs she had.

Well we did it! Izac sighted our first land, the northern tip of Guadeloupe today just after 12! Ollie was closest to betting the exact time but went over by about half an hour, Wika was the winner with 8 am today - well done all around!

Day 18:  Another beautiful day here aboard the Cramer in the sub-tropical convergence zone of the Atlantic Ocean.  Today, students spent time learning the ropes of whipping, seizing and eye splicing for our Nautical Science class this afternoon.

Phase Change!

Alicia Pane, B Watch, Middlebury 2023.5

Life on a tall ship is very different from life on land. Everything is always moving, you sleep at the weirdest times, and six meals a day is totally normal. However, at just over two weeks in, the Cramer feels like a home and all these eccentricities feel as though it is just how life is meant to be.
