Bitter Sweet

Gretchen Beehler, C-watch, Purdue University
Caribbean Reef Expedition

We have spent the last couple of days sailing our way to Puerto Rico. Last night was our last dawn watch for C-watch and the last watch we will ever have on this boat L. Dawn watch is always difficult but we kept ourselves awake with puppy chow and just making each other laugh. After six hours of making up songs and just being loopy, all our dreams came true when at 0640 a bunch of dolphins came to play in our ship’s wake!

Fair Winds Salps, Secchi, and S-276

Sarah Zephier, A Watch, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The Global Ocean

Today is the day, we set sail but this time not on a six-week adventure in the South Pacific, but instead we set sail back home, returning to our universities, transferring to new universities or starting Basic Training. No matter where we are going, we, the students of S-276, will always be taking the memories and experiences with us in ways we have never known coming into this before.

Styrocast

Ryan Betters, C Watch, Grinnell College
Caribbean Reef Expedition

“Wire ready!” I shout as I stand by the hydrowinch and prepare to lower two pantyhose stuffed with decorated Styrofoam cups into the ocean. It may not sound like it, but our last science deployment of the voyage is quite an emotional event. Students and crew alike spent the last day adorning their own cups with depictions of various sea creatures, coral reefs, beautiful Caribbean sunsets, and treasured memories from our journey

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.

Anchor Watch Reflections

Lindsey Call, B-watch, Amherst College
The Global Ocean

Hey there!

Lindsey here, reporting from the deck of the good Robert C. Seamans and fresh from lone 2200-2300 anchor watch. It was a quiet watch tonight- today marks the end of all of our schoolwork with a final round of research presentations, and the students are finally free from the stress of getting those last few leadership journal entries written down and the final paragraphs of their MHC paragraphs reviewed and edited.

Track Tramping & Christmas Spirit

Kaylee Pierson, C Watch, Sewanee University
The Global Ocean

With Christmas decorations up in the galley, cookies being decorated, and the hum of “Winter Wonderland” being sung, I’m feeling the holiday spirit even in the New Zealand summer heat! As finals week (loose use of the term here, just look at the photo from yesterday) comes to an end, everyone on board is in high spirits and soaking up all the goodness of life on board the Robert C. Seamans.
