Product Description

A fifth-generation native of Newport, Rhode Island, Herb McCormick has been racing and cruising from above the Arctic Circle to Antarctica-and chronicling his adventures and travels in magazines, newspapers and on the Internet-for over three decades.

An anthology of his best profiles and articles, including first person accounts of sailing in such classic events as the Sydney-Hobart Race and rounding Cape Horn, Gone to the Sea is an eclectic collection of stories that range from a prophetic cruise with his daughter; to an in-depth post mortem of solo sailor Mike Plant's final, mysterious voyage; to what it's really like to spend a hectic day with Americas' Cup legend Dennis Conner.

The former editor-in-chief of Cruising World magazine and yachting correspondent for The New York Times, McCormick has notched over 75,000 offshore miles in his sailing career, including the historic 2009-2010 Around the Americas expedition that circumnavigated North and South America via the Northwest Passage and Cape Horn.

As an award-winning journalist, he's been honored with the National Marine Manufacturer Association's prestigious Director's Award and the BoatUS.
