Andrew Vik

Instructor

Andrew, a San Francisco native with Viking roots, took up sailing on the Bay over 20 years ago. He has since sailed his own boats to Mexico and around the Mediterranean many times.

In 2018, Andrew logged his first ocean crossing, helping a friend sail an Amel 54 across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. After 18 days offshore, they eagerly arrived on December 31. Sleep deprivation did not stop the all-night New Year's Eve celebration in Guadeloupe!

These days, Andrew is often out on the Bay teaching for Modern Sailing or sailing a 38-footer that he and a buddy have owned together since the Mexico voyage in 2006. In the summer months, he often travels to his favorite sailing territory to enjoy the warm sunshine, fresh breezes, and turquoise seas of Croatia and the beautiful Adriatic Coast.

Testimonials

  • Trudy Flores

    Captain Jeff Cathers is really cool. I had such a great time on the Farallones Day Trip. It was actually my very best day of 2020. Thank you so much for coordinating the trip.

  • John Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.

  • Andrew Goble, San Francisco

    It has been wonderful sailing with MSC over the years. Please extend my thanks to the owners, management, and staff for unrequited professionalism and high standards in a charter fleet. I have sailed with several in my years and none nearly hold a candle to the quality of business and staff at Modern Sailing.
