Randall Reeves to Complete Figure 8 Voyage Around Antarctica and the Americas on October 19
OCC Member Randall Reeves and s/v Mōli will have
completed an historic circumnavigation of both Antarctica and the Americas in
one season. Randall Reeves departed from San Francisco just over one year ago
on what he called the Figure 8 Voyage. This solo journey would take him around
the Antarctic through the Southern Ocean, then up the coast of the Americas and
through the Northwest Passage to return to San Francisco. This has never been
“All day I sat by the lee window and wondered what I should think of all these miles under the keel. So much water. Almost a year of perpetual motion. Only to return to where we started. Without a hold full of gold. And not feeling that much wiser.
But satisfied. Is that what this was about?
Though not fully, not yet. Now is not quite the time for reverie. A very stiff wind off the coast next Tuesday/Wednesday may make that final approach tricky.
Better to stay focused. After the anchor is dug in, then philosophy. For now, sail.”
We are standing by to welcome Randall and Mōli home and celebrate their remarkable achievement.
The schedule for the weekend will be posted by mid next week
including the Saturday celebrations and the Sunday reception. If you are
planning to attend, keep an eye out as the organizers will need your official
RSVP for a couple of the events so they can get you into various locations.
