Gone to the Sea

This is an anthology of McCormick's best profiles and articles of the 3 decades he chronicled, 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.
