Erica is keeping her options open after her regular 49erFX partner of 2017, Kate Stewart, decided to study medicine. The pair had forged a good record over the previous 12 months, finishing 13th at their first world championships together and winning bronze at Enoshima Olympic Week. Kate’s decision prompted Erica to try the Laser Radial, which she sailed at the 2018 Oceanbridge NZL Sailing Regatta, but she’s still dabbling with the 49erFX and claimed the 2018 New Zealand title with Tom Saunders.

Erica had previously achieved some good results with Ellie Copeland, highlighted by a silver medal at the 2015 World Cup in Melbourne.
