Hi, I’m Erik. My life has revolved around sailing since I was 3 years old and could identify the color blue. Fast forward 25 years and now I’m a member of the US Sailing Team Men’s Laser Class. Basically that means I travel the world, sail against the best international sailors in the toughest competitions on the circuit. When I’m not competing, I’m coaching and when I’m not coaching, I’m eating, sleeping, training. Pretty exciting, amiright?! My next big goal is to make it to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. You can follow my journey and get in touch for whatever reason here.
