Port call in New London

New London — The brigantine sailing vessel SSV Corwith Cramer docked Wednesday at City Pier.

The Cramer is operated by the Woods Hole, Mass., Sea Education Assocation (SEA) and is dropping off a group of students from the Williams-Mystic maritime studies program at the end of a 10-day educational research voyage from Rockland, Maine.E

Eighteen students, from twelve colleges and universities across the United States in addition to Williams College, were joined by Associate Professor of Geosciences and Marine Science Lisa Gilbert, Assistant Professor of Marine Ecology Tim Pusack, Professor of English Christian Thorne, and Executive Director Tom Van Winkle for the voyage.

The ten-day voyage was part of a seventeen-week semester program. The program sails in the Gulf of Maine most fall semesters. During spring semesters, sailing is in the Caribbean off the coast of Puerto Rico.

The Cramer will be at City Pier overnight, picking up its next group of students Thursday.
