This holiday season we’re reflecting on all of the incredible people, places, and things we’re thankful for during our “5 Days of Thankfulness.”
Let’s take a look at 5 reasons to be thankful at Sea|mester!
1 – Fair Winds and Following Seas
We love those “sporty” days of charging through an angry ocean just as much as the next crew, but we’d be lying if we said we didn’t appreciate the calm seas too.
2 – Our Incredibly Talented Staff
We are as diverse as the destinations we travel. We come from all different backgrounds – Captains, Marine Engineers, Marine Biologists, Oceanographers… Some of our team came to Sea|mester to study abroad in college and found their way back realizing that their life’s work was right here. Regardless of how we arrived or where we came from, we share a desire to reach, discover and evolve.
3 – Foul Weather Gear
It’s 3:00 am and you’re on bow watch until 7 am.The wind picks up and a drop of water hits your face. Then another. And another. Pretty soon the rain is pouring and you realize you’re going to be sitting in place for the next four hours.
This is the moment you’re glad you invested in decent foul weather gear because, without it, life just plain stinks. Bring on the wind and rain.
4 – Boat Feasts!
We’ve encountered some truly talented chefs over the years – students and staff alike! There’s nothing better than a warm meal after a long day of classes or a few hours spent on bow watch.
5 – The Views at Night
Suffice it to say that light pollution in the middle of the ocean is non-existent. The views out here simply can’t be beat.
Don’t believe us? Guess you’ll just have to come see for yourself.
