Kevin McCormick, Publisher

Kevin’s love of the coast comes from spending every Summer (and most school holidays) with his Grandmother on the Solway Coast in South West Scotland which was quite a contrast from his family home in South East London. In 2005, he and his wife moved with their children to North Cornwall, to be by the sea, and he enjoys bodyboarding, surfing, kayaking and walking the coastal footpath.
