Andrew Mollerus was born and raised in Larchmont, New York. He was introduced to sailing when his parents enrolled him in Larchmont Yacht Club’s Junior SailingProgram, where he quickly fell in love with the sport and competed in Optis, 420s, and 29ers over the following 10 years. Andrew attended Harvard University and was a member of their sailing team, serving as Team Captain during his sophomore and junior years.  In 2016, Andrew was named a Collegiate All-American and was awarded the 2016 Francis H. Burr Award, given each year to a senior who “combines as nearly as possible Burr’s remarkable qualities of character, leadership, scholarship, and athletic ability.”

Post-college, Andrew decided to pursue sailing at the Olympic level. In 2018, Andrew teamed up with Ian MacDiarmid and quickly found success on the international circuit. Now, Andrew and Ian are campaigning full-time for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games.
