Sunbear

Eric started sailing at the age of 18 with his brother. From small dinghies he moved on to several other types of vessels such as catamarans and trailer sailers. Over the last 15 years, his offshore sailing experience includes Melbourne to Hobart as well as Sydney to Hobart races, the Melbourne to Vanuatu race in 2010 and the Osaka Cup double handed yacht race in 2013.

Eric will compete in the Mini Globe Race to fulfil his lifelong dream of sailing around the world. He is looking forward to starting in Antigua and the journey with nature along the way.

His boat ‘Sunbear’ (79) was built and skippered by Michael Moyer from California and took part in the Globe 5.80 Transat 2023.
