Greetings from beautiful St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands and thank you for reading the inaugural blog post for C-289 (the “C” stands for our ship, the Corwith Cramer, which will be our home for the 289th SEA Semester voyage).

Today in Chatham

Gwen Roode & Jaffir Wajahat, homeschool & Greens Farms Academy

SEA Semester

Today we spent the majority of our day in the town of Chatham. Chatham is home to the famous U.S. Coast Guard Station featured in The Finest Hours and the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy (AWSC), both of which we visited. At the White Shark Conservancy, we learned about great white sharks and the high concentration of white sharks in the Chatham area due to the increased local seal population.

THE VIEW FROM ALOFT: Spring Improvements to Woods Hole Campus

Jim Moynihan, Shore Facilities Coordinator

SEA Semester

As I write this, spring is just around the corner. You would think that the cold, winter months are the not-so-busy-time for SEA’s shore facilities coordinator. On the contrary! I may not be out and about as much, but my days are filled with planning and coordinating our much-needed springtime maintenance activities. I’m fortunate this year to have a six-week window of opportunity to get some larger improvement projects done that would otherwise interrupt student life here on campus.

It was a pleasant Saturday morning when we sailed past the Hole in the Rock and into the Bay of Islands, just north of Auckland. The scenery all around us was stunning and we encountered lots of boat traffic, consisting mainly of sailboats. We then anchored just off of Russell, a cute little town tucked away between the rolling hills of the Northland.

Shark Cams & SEA trivia

Emma Baker & Alexa Collins, Canyon High School & Kings School Canterbury

SEA Semester

Today we had a guest speaker, Amy Kukulya, a leading engineer behind shark cam at WHOI. She talked to us about her career pathways and aspirations in engineering and other fields such as environmental policy. She described many difficulties she has had to face in the field, like being the only female in a white male environment. Her talk was very inspirational and eye-opening for all of us.

Mauri friends and family of the 2018 SEA PIPA Expedition,

Our little world shrunk to 34 people when we boarded this ship in Honolulu, but our world began to grow when we started trawling for zooplankton below us and realized we were far from alone. Our little world just grew again today.
