Dan first began sailing in his home country of New Zealand at the age of ten. He originally learned to sail in an Optimist class boat, and graduated to the P class two years later. His talent was evident early on as he finished in the top ten in the National Championships. At 14, Dan outgrew the P class and moved into the Starling class. He won every regatta of the season and was the youngest sailor ever to win the National Championships.
