Biography

Steve Erickson won an Olympic gold medal in the Star Class at the 1984 Olympics, just after his senior year at the University of Washington. He then became one of the first professional sailors, competing all around the world for over 30 years. During this time Erickson has competed on five America’s Cup campaigns, serving as operations manager for his last campaign. He also raced the Whitbread Round-the-World (later Volvo) several times, and the Hobart Race off the coast of Sydney. Erickson returned to Stars in the early 2000s and attempted to make the 2004 Olympic team but without success.
