Adam Cort was named principal editor of Sail magazine and Cort replaces longtime editor-in-chief Peter Nielsen, who will continue to work with the magazine as a contributor.

Cort joined Sail in 2009 as a senior editor and was subsequently promoted to executive editor.

Cort grew up racing and cruising on the Great Lakes. He is the author of two books on sailing, Getting Started in Sailboat Racing and The Blue Book of Sailing. He lives, works and sails in the Boston area.

“Adam’s depth of experience and passion for both sailing and journalism will be tremendous assets as Sail continues to explore the fast-evolving world of modern publishing,” said

Gary DeSanctis, president of Active Interest Media’s Marine Group. “We deeply appreciate all that Peter Nielsen has done for Sail over the years and look forward to continuing to have his voice be a part of the magazine.”

Sail is a sister magazine to Soundings Trade Only within the AIM Marine Group.
