Dan: Dan has grown up racing. In 2009, after 10 years of working full-time on a wide variety of boats and racing in many major events, Dan moved into the single-handed Mini Transat. Starting with a self-funded, low-budget campaign, he began to get notable results and found a sponsor (Soitec) in 2011. With his fully-sponsored boat and campaign, Dan finished the Charente-Maritime Bahia Transat 6.50 in 16th of 78. With his background in academic engineering, boat building and rigging, Dan brings many skills to the team. Dan has always planned on moving up to a Class 40 after the Mini, and now it’s time to take the next step.
