Star World Champion in 1999 with Tom Olsen, Eric Doyle has been successful in different classes, but the one true love is the Star, where he often finds himself competing directly against Team USA Captain Paul Cayard. Eric was raised in Pass Christian along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, where he learned at a young age that he was hooked on sailing. Vince Brun found him after college, and he began his career at North Sails in 1992. Shortly after that he was hired by Dennis Conner to sail with Stars & Stripes America’s Cup campaign in 2000. Continuing on, he raced with BMW Oracle for the 2003 and 2007 America’s Cup campaigns. Eric’s passion is with smaller keel boats, other than the Star, like the Etchells, Melges 24, and J/70. But he doesn’t shy away from the big boats, winning the Maxi World Championship in 2004. Eric is currently based in San Diego.
