10/15/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 25

In transit off of the Virginia coast

Carlos M.

Today started with an early wake up to reef the main sail.  The boat was keeling hard enough for me to wake up with a light blood rush in my head.  Included with that, I had a sluggish wake up due to having the 00:00-04:00 watch last night and only having six hours of s…

10/14/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 24

Off the coast of Delaware

Kristen G.

My day started at 03:30 this morning.  I was instructed that it would be very cold, and based on my experience on my previous 20:00-00:00 watch, I wasn’t taking any chances.  Under full foulies, I wore three pairs of pants and seven top layers.  When I emerged from…

10/13/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 23

New York Harbor

Teagan R.

Today can, easily, be described as one of the better days aboard beautiful Roseway.  I was awakened to an unfortunate cold, rainy front that swept away the little desire I had to exit the protection of my warm sleeping bed.  Ryan’s unsettling suggestion to “layer up und…

10/12/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 22

New London, CT

AJ H.

Today was a pretty average day on the Roseway.  We were woken up at 7am by Renny, to a very unfortunate phrase, “good morning- it’s full foulie weather.”  I prepared myself for the day in so many layers I could hardly move. Just when I thought I knew what to expect, I n…

New London, CT

Ryan E.

Today I was awakened promptly at seven o’clock and was told to prepare for a run and workout with John and Holly around the city of New London, Connecticut.  I moaned and sat up remembering my decision last night of signing myself up for an hour of exercise in the morning.&n…

10/10/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 20

New London, CT

Alex M.

My day started at the ripe hour of 04:00.  Despite this being an ungodly time to be awake, the weather was clear, and the air coolly refreshing.  As the stars began to fade we found ourselves drenched in a cloud of fog.  Considering there was no rain and the seas w…

10/09/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 19

New Bedford, MA

Renny MT

Today was just another day in port.  I received a standard wake up at 04:00, which I was thrilled about!  Today was the first time we would do anchor/dock watch without a deckhand or mate present.  This was really nice because it showed that we are earning the resp…

10/08/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 18

New Bedford, MA

Johnny G.

I ran out of snacks three days ago… Now, I’m sitting here watching everybody else eating Oreos, jerky, Starburst, protein bars, and other assorted treats.  It’s torture!  Some students on the boat have stuffed their snack bags to the point of popping- I don’t kn…

10/07/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 17

New Bedford, MA

Mackenzie T.

Today I was awoken at 5:45 to the calming sound of someone softly telling me the weather and that it was time for my watch.  I climbed out of the fo’c’sle and out on deck where the former group was waiting for me to do turnover.  I had the last anchor watch which means …

10/06/18 - Ocean Classroom: Day 16

Nikki

While being anchored in the outskirts of the Cape Cod Canal, I woke up at 07:00 like any other day.  We (the group of students and I) were woken up by practicing emergency procedures, such as man over board, fire and abandon ship.  After we were clear from the drills, I…
