Over the past 50 years, Dan has sailed with numerous fleets including IC dinghy, Lightning, Laser, Thistle, J/24, Farr 30, Soling and PHRF. His experience has led him to three One design National titles and a US Sailing Championship of Champions gold medal over the last five years. He also has a Professional Mariners 50-Ton, Near Shore, Masters License, with Sailing and Towing Endorsements from US Coast Guard.

Dan has coached beginners and Olympians, and enjoys supporting sailors at all experience levels. When consulting he hopes to increase racers and casual cruisers enjoyment of sailing by making their experience simple, safe, and successful. Further, as a member of US Sailings Diversity and Inclusion Committee Dan believes that awareness of and access to, sailing by all socioeconomic groups should be our sports’ main priority.

“I enjoy the competition and camaraderie in this sport and am fascinated by how sailing challenges many fields of science and engineering. As a professional engineer by training, I view the opportunity to solve problems in our sport as a life long and even infinite endeavor.”

Dan looks forward to assisting new and current clients in Rochester, NY.
