The Figure 8 Voyage
by Reeves, Randall
In 2019 and on his second attempt, Randall Reeves completed a circumnavigation of both the American and Antarctic continents, including two consecutive roundings of Cape Horn and a transit of the Arctic’s Northwest Passage, all in one season and alone. This coffee-table-style picture book tells the story of both attempts through the many images taken during Randall and Moli’s 384-day, nearly 40,000-mile odyssey. The book is printed on heavy paper of 11 by 8.5 inches; it is 100 pages, 10,000 words, and 250 color photographs from every ocean and every weather. Upon his return, Randall was awarded the Ocean Cruising Club’s Barton Cup and later, the Cruising Club of America’s Bluewater Medal.
