Right of Way in NY Harbor: Staten Island Ferry

Helen Wolter, Sailing Intern

Study Abroad at Sea

We made it through New York Harbor! With last night’s sunset it dawned on us how close we were to land. Our lookout began report lights off the port and starboard bow and suddenly we realized we were sailing straight towards an expansive Long Island. Having heard the light pollution of the city is cause for some beautiful sunsets, all the ship’s company stood on the port side and watched as the lights faded through yellows, pinks, and reds, and finally the sun disappeared in the haze on the horizon.

One Last Hoorah

It was a wonderful last full day in NYC as we got to explore behind-the-scenes of the New York Aquarium on Coney Island. After meeting with Dr. Merry Camhi, director of the New York Seascape project, and sharing research and observations from our survey of the Hudson Canyon, we headed off on a tour of the upcoming shark exhibit’s construction site. We looked pretty sharp and safe in our hard hats and reflective vests.

New York, New Crew, and Endless Emotions

Inexpresable. If I could describe today in one word, it would be inexpresable. Our day was filled with realizations and puffy eyes as we navigated through the busy waters of New York City harbor. Realizations that today was our last day underway aboard the Corwith Cramer, that these could be our last sweats on the braces, our final sail firls, dawn watch, lookout and helm time. It was with a sense of accomplishment, excitement, and sadness that we docked at 0800 in Brookline Harbor, knowing that this was not a port stop, that we would be departing with all of our things in less than two days.

Once upon a time in a land far far away from Bermuda there was a group of young adventurers….

Today we went to the New York Aquarium on Coney Island. We heard a talk about the Wildlife Conservation Society’s New York Seascape project, and their work with sharks and eels. We were treated to a behind the scenes look at the exhibits that are currently on display. Unfortunately much of the aquarium is still under repair from Hurricane Sandy.

Here were are docked in New York City, more than 1600 nautical miles away from our starting location in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I’’m sure the previous blogs have made it clear, but it has been an incredible journey through and through. Up until the very end my experience on Mama Cramer has been exceptional (thankful it’s not quite over).
