Getting Ready for the Big Race!

Emily Brady, B Watch, UMass Amherst


Tomorrow is the big day, the much anticipated Pin Rail Chase! We’ve been hard at work trying to learn every line on the boat in the past week, and we get tested on them all tomorrow in a big relay-style race between the watches. Much of today’s free time has been dedicated to really cementing our knowledge of the lines.

First Land in Days, Last Land for Weeks

Will Lounsbery-Scaife, B Watch, New York University


After five days of sailing, we have reached the Chatham Islands! We will be staying here for about two days. Tomorrow morning, most of the crew and all of the students will be leaving the ship and taking a tour of the main island. Not many people live here, but the islands are beautiful: sharp volcanic rocks covered in grass, patches of small trees, and unique birds.

Land HO! Sailing into Samana

Karen Lynch, B Watch, Knox College

Caribbean Study Abroad

Hello to one and all of you wonderful souls keeping up with the Cramer! Throughout this past week of sailing, I have experienced a seemingly endless array of blue skies, cumulous and stratus clouds, and constellations - of course with very slight interruption of squalls blowing through from time to time.

Welcome aboard!

Audrey Meyer, Chief Scientist, SEA

Penn State at SEA

Welcome to the SEA Penn State program blog! I am happy to report that all 24 Penn State participants (22 students, their professor Monica Medina, and TA Aki Ohdera) safely arrived in San Juan and boarded the Corwith Cramer at 1100 this morning.  After a quick muster on the quarterdeck for introductions, we transited the ship to a nearby anchorage in San Juan Harbor, blissfully leaving the noisy harbor behind. Orientation to the ship began almost immediately after anchoring and an All-Hands lunch.

Adventures in Barbuda

Camila Mirow, Mount Holyoke College

Caribbean Reef Expedition

Aboard the Corwith Cramer travelling by sea, her lovely crew and I have seen Grenada, Tobago Cays, Canouan, Montserrat, Antigua and Barbuda. This past month has been filled with countless adventures and breathtaking moments too profound to ever forget. The feeling of sailing in the dark on a moonless night is amazing.

Steph Gorney, A Watch, Northeastern University

Caribbean Reef Expedition

Beside the Corwith Cramer, Barbuda stretches out- low-lying and tranquil, encompassing half the horizon. The water is the kind of clear aqua blue that you would expect to find on a brochure advertising some type of dream getaway; and the sun warms my skin as I lean into a wind that hasn’t seen humans since it left the Sahara Desert to blow across the Atlantic.
