The Gales Blew Through
As I’m sitting here in the library typing this up, Megan and I can see the waves crashing over the port hole. The waves today have been so intense that they’ve been crashing over the deck, and quite a few unlucky individuals have been soaked, including Raechel, Becca and Ethan. It has been quite a watch.

Music, Oh how we missed you
Everyone is starting to get more and more comfortable aboard the Cramer. Watch routines are starting to feel normal, which has everyone feeling less stressed. Last night we had a gale pass through with some rough winds and heavy rain. Dawn watch had to deal with most of the effects. After the gale moved through the sky cleared up and led to a beautiful day. Today was also our first Field Day!!

Trip South Round 2
This is my second consecutive year doing the trip south and oh how different those two trips have been. This year, like last year, started a little later than planned and this year, like last year, we stopped in at the Sakonnet River, but this year, unlike last year, I am sailing for the first time as third assistant scientist!

And We’re Off!
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.
