Grapes in Peril

Natalie Greenbaum, UMass Amherst

Hello bloggies!

Natalie here from C Watch. Today was a wonderful day. We had some free time this morning to explore the art deco-d streets of Napier and do some laundry (yay!). Later in the afternoon, we went a winery and learned all about the effects of climate change on the winery industry.

On Shore in Napier!

Rachel Clausen, B-Watch, Salisbury University

After a restful night sleep at anchor my watch (B) and I arose at 0600 to a delicious breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and kiwi and to start to steer the boat into port! It was a pretty short drive as we anchored only about an hour and half trip away from where we were in port. It was an absolutely gorgeous morning and the ride over was super peaceful

Sådan en dag I December!

Amelia Ahring, B-watch, University of Copenhagen

width="650"

1st of December always marks the beginning of a countdown: to Christmas, to New Years, to the end of this decade (!) and this time, to the end of our time at sea, SEA, and with each other. That makes this year’s countdown feel a little more bittersweet than usual, as we have only a couple of weeks left.

Amelia’s First Thanksgiving!

Sarah Strand, B-Watch, Sewanee: University of the South

width="600"

Happy Thanksgiving from the Robert C Seamans! As we sailed into the morning we knew it was going to be a great day given that for the very first time on our cruise the square sails, course and tops’l, were set! With the north winds at our backs these sails helped inch us closer and closer to our next port stop in Napier.

Rocking and Rolling

Rachel Clausen, Salisbury University

width="650"

Hello everyone on land! This is Rachel J. Today started off pretty rocky as I was shaken awake at 0100 by some big swells. They sent everything flying: me, my stuff, and even fish (two flying fish jumped up on board during dawn watch). I eventually was able to get back to sleep, only to be awoken a few hours later at 0600 for morning watch.

Well hello there, land people! You’ve guessed it. It’s me, Maia. Today A watch woke up at 0600 for breakfast to start the day off with morning watch (0700-1300). After a not so good night of sleep from a lot of rocking, my mood was quickly turned around when I realized I was in lab!

“Thar she blows mateys! Lower the whale boats ya landlubbers and bring us back a beauty of the deep! Fire up the main furnace, Nate!” That’s our captain, Chris, bellowing to the crew to set out on a whale chase. Ha ha, I am kidding.
