Randall Reeves and s/v MOLI are on the final leg of their Figure 8 Voyage around Antarctica and the Americas in one year - one season. The tracker shows them having arrived safely in Nome despite a thrashing in the Chukchi seas.

From Nome, home in San Francisco is a straight shot south. Only 3000 miles left to go.
