The monthly Yachting started on January 1907, when publisher Oswald Garrison Villard released the first issue of Yachting. A year later he appointed his “schoolmate and lifelong friend”, 37-year-old Herbert L. Stone, as the magazine’s second editor. Stone continued as the editor through a series of ownership changes, except for a brief period during World War I when Stone went to war and William Atkin took over.
