Family, friends, shipmates, and all those else who wander by,

By the time you read this, our cruise, like those that came before and those that follow, will have reached its inevitable end. One last giant field day was taken care of, the traditional Swizzle razzled and dazzled on the last evening, and the last watches were stood.

“SIGHT!”

Upon the Corwith Cramer, community is key. There are twenty-nine of us aboard, each one equally responsible for the health, happiness, and general well-being of the others.  One must always stow their gear neatly, brush their hair on deck, and bid their thanks to the day’s dish-doer.

Hello family and friends of C-282 crew!

Today we had a beautiful day with calm winds and sea. My watch had the pleasure to see a stunning sunrise this morning during dawn watch (0100-0700) after a pretty busy watch. We did some science processing alkalinity, pH, Chlorophyll-a, and microplastics for a water sample from a surface station.

Hi all friends and family of the crew on C-282!

I know it has been few days since our last blog post, but we have been experiencing some Gale force conditions and almost all our energy went to trying to stay vertical and keeping the seasickness away.

Hi everyone!  Today marks our first full day on the open ocean!  After leaving the anchorage at the mouth of the Sakonnet River yesterday, we sailed a course of 170 degrees through the night on favorable western winds, making quick progress along our cruise track.
