The Sea Education Association (SEA) has taken delivery of the Corwith Cramer, a 135ft brigantine built by Astilleros y Talleres Celaya (ASTACE) in Bilbao, Spain. Named for SEA's founder, the new vessel joins the research schooner, Westward, in carrying oceanographic and scientific expeditions to sea. The Cramer will rendezvous with the Westward in the Caribbean before they sail together into Woods Hole on 14 May . Sea Semester class No . 100 will set sail on the Cramer on 20 May. The Cramer is the first vessel built according to standards set forth in the Coast Guard's sailing school vessel regulations. The ASTACE yards have built a number of sail training ships in recent years, including Mexico's Cuauhtemoc, Colombia's Gloria, Venezuela's Simon Bolivar and Ecuador's Guayas. (Susan E. Humphris , Dean, SEA , PO Box 6, Woods Hole, MA 02543; 617 540-3954) Launch of the Pride of Baltimore 11 is set for late April. The new Baltimore clipper will replace the original Pride, which was lost with four hands in 1986. Pride 11 is built to improved standards of safety and will be eligible to carry passengers. This will allow her to expand on her predecessor's mission of promoting Maryland's industry , tourism and maritime heritage, and it will enable her to work in sail training.

Square Rigged Services, Ltd. , have announced plans to build a 4-masted bark to sail with young offenders in adventure training. The ship is to accommodate 80 trainees and an afterguard of 40 officers, teachers and professional personnel , and it is to have the capacity to carry 1,000 tons of general cargo. The cargo, it is thought, will give the trainees a more crisply defined sense of purpose than they might have in a more purely adventure training program such as that undertaken by the Sail Training Association and other European sail training schemes. In developing plans for the program, director Morin Scott cites the American VisionQuest program as an example of the success that can be obtained through sail training with youthful offenders. Naval architect Colin Mudie has prepared plans for a vessel with a hull length of280ft. (H.F.
