Dan’s dream

danielDan became disabled at the age of 15 after major surgery to combat cancer. During his long and difficult battle with caner, Dan was an exceptional example of courage and a source of inspiration to all who were privileged to meet him. Sailing was a part of his life before he developed cancer, but it became a main focus for him as a channel through which he could release tension and frustration, set himself goals and aspirations and rise above his trials.
Dan reached the top of the national Challenger Class in 2002 by winning the four home nations regattas and the overall UK trophy, a feat that had never been achieved before in the same year.
Dan’s dream: “To make the joy of sailing the challenger available to disabled people across the world and promote the boat so that it can be sailed in competition at the highest level (world championships) eventually to become the multi-hull boat in the Paralympics”
