The Voyage Begins, C-297
July 7, 2021
20 nm southwest of Provincetown MA
It has been a jam-packed start to the trip. After boarding on Monday afternoon, students had orientation stations including the lab, helm, aloft, bowsprit, hydrowinch, engine room, and galley. Delicious meals to keep everyone fueled up were constant from our galley team of Ashley and Mysti. After departing Woods Hole and the SEA Semester campus, the Corwith Cramer proceeded to anchor in Buzzards Bay where we completed more training and had a big thunderstorm pass by. Afterwards, everyone slept well in a secure anchorage.
Today, we woke up early to transit through the Cape Cod Canal, where we had a fan club on the shore of several students' friends and family as well as our shore-side Resident Advisor team. From there, we headed out into Cape Cod Bay and got working - a Neuston science deployment in the morning, a swim call and Shipek deployment in the afternoon, and another secure anchorage in Provincetown for the night.
We are using all of our satellite and weather resources to keep a close eye on Tropical Storm Elsa as it moves up the east coast of the United States. As the storm transitions to an extra-tropical system, it is very quick moving and the path is uncertain. What is certain is there will be lots of rain, a brief bit of wind, and that we will be tucked away in a secure anchorage to let the weather pass through as we continue Science at SEA learning!
