A Solstice and a Swizzle

Happy Solstice! The sun has been spending less and less time in the sky recently; setting earlier and rising later as the Earth’s orbit tips the axis away from the sun.

Today all started with our friendly local engineer waking me up an 0600 to stand anchor watch with a couple of my watchmates.

Opportunities

Maya Morales, Smith College

The pandemic has altered futures and disrupted many students’ academic paths and potential jobs. I find myself at the center of this. In 2020 we all assumed it would pass like everything else and we could go back to “normal.” I was a sophomore at Smith College full of drive and hope, applying to over 20 internships for the summer and looking forward to my study abroad the following spring in 2021. One by one, each internship got canceled, never knowing if I even qualified for any of them and still, I had hope.

Beginning of the end

Even though I’m unexpectedly filling in for this blog post I feel like I know what to say and how to say it.

Next Stop, Hawai’i!

Abigail Colby, Deckhand

Today is a special day on the Robert C. Seaman’s - it is shipmate Rachel’s birthday! Happy birthday Rachel! We celebrated with cupcakes for afternoon snack. The galley team might have overshot the frosting recipe and eager hands are now enjoying this miscalculation by the spoonful. I think we have an energetic afternoon ahead of us.

Hello world! It has been quite an adventure aboard the Seamans as we make our way out of the tropics and head NW towards Hawaii.

We’re half way there!

Bella Duati, Syracuse University

Swells on Seamans

Believe it or not we are already on day 18 of sailing! 18 don’t even sound right to me and what’s even crazier is that we have deployed our 32nd carousel today! And as Katie previously mentioned before, we are encountering some honking squalls out here!
