Michele McCormack is a Newport Beach native, long involved in the local boating community. She has been a member of Balboa Yacht Club since 1987 but her family membership dates back to the early 60’s. She sailed for the Newport Harbor High School Sailing team, competing in local regattas and lettering as a Varsity sailor, attending Nationals in Annapolis, MD. Michele currently sails Harbor 20’s with the BYC SkipHers on Monday evenings.
A passion project of Michele’s stems directly from experiences during her lifetime of boating; she believes that any woman should be capable and confident at the helm and actively encourages women of all ages to take time at the wheel, to seek crew opportunities and to be educated in all the facets of running their boat.
Professionally, Michele’s extensive sales experience, in a variety of roles and industries, has given her a unique grasp of all aspects of just what it takes to make her clients happy and keep returning. Her warmth, intelligence, approachability and honesty, puts people at ease. Her experience with a vast range of larger powerboats informs her discriminating taste and will support those who secure her services well. Her knowledge of the boats, the people, and the industry in Newport Harbor allows her to be aware of all and any opportunities in service of her clientele. Hire her, but you may need to go to B-1 at Whites in Catalina to find her.
