Learning the Ropes, Well Lines Actually

Perhaps you have paid close attention to our ship’s name, the SSV Corwith Cramer.  Sailing School Vessel. That means no passengers, only crew, so the students have a fair bit of training to complete before we can safely head out to sea.

Last Day with Cramer & Co.

Scott Waller, Middlebury College

width="2048"

We all knew this moment was coming. As the sun set over the East River, those of us leaving tomorrow began packing our belongings and cleaning our bunks. I can hardly believe that we’ve concluded our voyage already; the Cramer became our home, and it’s hard to leave such a familiar place behind and to readjust to the rhythms of life on land.
