Harbor of Refuge, Point Judith, Rhode Island

Angel C.

Today on the Roseway was a tough day. I woke up to a nice song by the one and only Adele and that was something else. The Roseway is honestly a great experience - it’s a whole other world you enter. At first doing boat checks sounded straight garbage but you learn to love it. My …

Buzzard’s Bay

Johnson Le

It’s been an adventurous 24 hours on Roseway. Everyone made it in good shape to say the least. The best part so far is Nick’s cooking (Thanks again Nick!), though the best has yet to come. I’m satisfied that no one is homesick, seasick, or phone-sick. Within the first 24 hours we…

Christiansted, St. Croix

Victoria M., Class of 2019

As the sun rose on St. Croix, our crew of CSS students set sail for the last time. Over the last 10 days, we’ve seen each other burnt from the sun and groggy from waking up at all hours of the night for our anchor watches. After mooring at Christiansted harbor and eating a delici…
