With each passing day the anticipation for the well-deserved “land ho!” grows greater as we come closer and closer to Turks and Caicos.

All In a Watch

Carolyn Vincent, C Watch, 2nd Mate

It’s crazy what a difference 12 hours makes. Last night when C Watch took the deck, menacing clouds loomed, lightening flashed and the engine roared as we motor-sailed into yet another squall. Gathering today for our pre-afternoon-watch-meeting, we searched in vain for a patch of shade in which to hide. We gybe, heave-to, set and strike sails on most watches.

Every Year a Trip South

Sophie “Süpi” Vallas, C watch, 2nd Assistant Scientist

width="600"

It is currently my third year doing the trip south, each one has been to a different destination with a different crew, different set of students and different adventures. I only planned on going on the first trip south two years ago but have somehow managed to be on everyone since.

The Bermuda Triangle

As we prepare for Halloween, what better place to be but venturing into the Bermuda Triangle, a small portion of the vast ocean that captures many peoples amazement with all of the mysteries it holds.

Clouds and stuff

Max Rait, B watch, Michigan State University

I woke up this morning at around 9:30 and took a shower, which I thoroughly enjoyed after a few days of sweating in the hot sun and in the galley. I then went up on deck and walked straight to the doghouse, where I scrolled around on the GPS computer to check how far we had gone overnight.

Star light, star bright, the Corwith Cramer sails at night

Claire Gabel, C Watch, Mount Holyoke College

width="533"

As anyone on this ship could tell you, time passes in a peculiar way aboard the Corwith Cramer. Perhaps it is because of our rotating watch schedule of 6 hours on and 12 hours off, but by nightfall, that morning’s sunrise always feels like days away.

The Gales Blew Through

Campbell Uyeki, B Watch, Rice University

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.

The Gulf Stream and Mini-boats

Gulf Stream ho!!

Last evening we sailed into the Gulf Stream and entered a current flowing briskly to the East at better than 3-knots.
