#249. Herb McCormick has made a career of writing about sailing, but it wasn’t entirely on purpose. A fifth-generation Newport, Rhode Island native, Herb didn’t even know that sailing was a thing at all until a chance meeting in his 20’s. After vagabonding around for a while, he wound up with a low-level job at Cruising World during the heyday of sailing magazines, and slowly started working his way up, of course eventually becoming Editor. Herb has seen it all in sailing, from the racing and cruising scene to an epic 13-month Around the America’s expedition on the 64-foot steel cutter OCEAN WATCH. I talked to Herb about what inspired him to follow his passion on the water.
