Williams-Mystic students join SSV Corwith Cramer


Greetings from SSV Corwith Cramer!

On Sunday, January 27, the Williams-Mystic S19 class joined SSV Corwith Cramer in San Juan just in time for lunch.  For the last 48 hours or so, we have been busy learning ship operations, getting used to walking on a rolling ship, and enjoying being out at sea.

Welcome home, Westward!

Peg Brandon, President, Sea Education Association

SEA Semester

A model of the R/V Westward, built by SEA Captain Carl Chase in 1980, has been restored and returned to the Woods Hole campus.

The model was built as a training tool to teach SEA Semester students about sail setting and striking and was used in class for many years.  Now Carl has completed the model’s “38-year refit” on the same workbench in his shop where he originally built it!
