Be a Sharp Spotter! The University of Delaware's Lewes campus is home port to the R/V Hugh R. Sharp, a state-of-the-art research vessel in the University-National Oceanographic Laboratory Systems (UNOLS) fleet. While she can travel to many locations like the Gulf of Mexico and Bermuda, most of the Sharp's exploration occurs in the waters of the Mid-Atlantic Bight, the area from Massachusetts to North Carolina.
The map below will give you the up-to-date location of the R/V Hugh R. Sharp, the ship's course and speed, the status of the mission, and the weather and water conditions at her current location. Have fun following the exploration of the Sharp!
