STBSP EP, 72, Randall Reeves and the Figure 8 Voyage

Captain Randall Reeves preparing for the Figure 8 Voyage.

Welcome to Episode 72 of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast (STBSP). This Episode we chat with Randall Reeves who is embarking on an ambitious voyage, doing a figure 8 around the Americas and the world, sailing past Cape Horn twice, around the world (Antarctica) in the Southern Ocean, then through the Atlantic to Greenland, through the North West Passage and back to San Francisco. He tells us about the inspiration, the boat, the refit, the provisions, and the plans for the voyage and how you can help him post in real time from the voyage. In a year we saw the Vendee Globe and Volvo Ocean Race, and with next years Golden Globe Race, he will be in good company as he sets off. Check his site out at http://figure8voyage.com/blog/
