Training Day for Class C-300
October 9, 2021
Alongside Dyers Dock, Woods Hole, MA
Clouds come and go, breeze picking up throughout the day, comfortable fall temperature.
Today was a busy, productive, enjoyable day onboard the SSV Corwith Cramer for all Ocean Exploration (OE) and Atlantic Odyssey (AO) students. As we prepare for our epic voyage across the North Atlantic Ocean the students learned how to handle the line safely, prepare for various emergency scenarios, and how to deploy some of the scientific equipment. Spirits were high recognizing that upon the completion of each training session we were incrementally moving one step closer to setting sail.
However, as a sailing school vessel (SSV) we do not carry any passengers; so all of this training is essential before we leave the dock. Energy remained high throughout the long day thanks to the amazing food coming from the galley – shout out to Shelby and Will our amazing stewards. We had baked brie for morning snack, bruschetta for afternoon snack, and hearty meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No worries here, all are eating well.
Much more to follow in the coming days and weeks. Soon you will hear directly from the students as this amazing story of C300 unfolds!
