Born in the North East of England, Andrew Waters started sailing when he was seven years old and began racing when he was nine. During college he worked at a local sailing school, and it wasn't long before he left college to devote himself to sailing. By the time his peers were graduating from college, he’d logged more than 100,000 offshore miles doing deliveries, racing, and training.
His professional career started in South Africa before he sailed to the Caribbean in 1996 on one of the first Catamarans to be chartered. When he wasn't working as a sail instructor, operations manager, or marine surveyor, Waters competed in various regattas throughout the Caribbean and US regions. His recent wins include the 2010 St. Martin Heineken Regatta, the 2011 and 2013 IC-24 Quantum International Championship, St Thomas International Rolex regatta, match racing, and the 2014 Gordon's Bay Yacht Club Lipton Cup Challenge.
In 2016, Waters joined the Quantum Sails team as a Sail and Service Consultant in Annapolis, Maryland. "I had been a customer of Quantum for many years, and I've always liked the vibe from the people associated with the group," said Waters. "My customers can expect honest dedication in helping them find the best Quantum product for their needs, as well as the service they deserve as they navigate their own sailing adventure, whether that's fulfilling a lifelong dream of cruising the Caribbean or reaching the podium of that one regatta they’ve been chasing down."
