I have over 30 years sailing experience including 20 years experience sailing San Francisco Bay and one ocean crossing.

Over the years, I have taken many people sailing on San Francisco Bay. Sometimes it is going under the Golden Gate Bridge or circling Angel Island or sailing lessons to prepare for bare-boating charters.

I have a Masters Degree (Civil Engineering) from Stanford. I have recently retired from a 20 year career in the engineering field to pursue my love of San Francisco sailing. I sail because I enjoy sailing, and I have purchased two boats that I enjoy sailing every day.

I have cruised and raced extensively (Chesapeake Bay, Long Island Sound, California coast, British Virgin Islands, Mexico). In April 2006, I helped deliver a boat across the Pacific, from the Galapagos Islands to the Marquesas (French Polynesia). The trip was 22 days and we covered over 3000 miles.

Reviews for Kirk M.
Sue for Sail Away With Your Crew

A FANTASTIC TIME ON THE WATER!!! I've been on Captain Kirk's boats twice now. I had a really great time! We saw harbor porpoises, the city from the water, alcatraz island and went under the Golden Gate bridge. The captain was fantastic, and inspired my confidence immediately! Everyone had a really great time!

Kirk's crew is fantastic. I had Captain Doug, who was very friendly and communicative. They went out of their way to make sure our group of 20 people had a good time, even helping us make sandwiches on board. Thanks Doug!
