Dan Ellis rounds off the MauiSails Race team for 2008
The MauiSails team is now complete and ready for action with the recent signing of Dan Ellis from the UK. Dan has been part of the strong UK contingent for the past few racing season's, winning the Asian Windsurfing tour, and finishing strongly in the PWA Racing events. Dan is now spending the majority of his time on Maui during the off season and will be assisting with testing, and will be able to join in the Team's vigorous training sessions on Maui.
Dan had this to say about joining Maui Sails: "I'm really excited to join the MauiSails Team. At the end of last season I packed up all my belongings in England and moved to Maui so I could train and be in the best possible environment for success. At today's PWA events you need the best possible equipment to make it to the top, and MauiSails provides that. The chance for me to work alongside Barry Spanier and Phil McGain, two of the best race technicians in the sport is what excites me the most. They have been making world beating sails for longer than I've windsurfed and I'm looking forward to joining them at the beach, testing and making a contribution to the development".
Dan's first event on MauiSails will be the DEFI wind long distance race in France, then after that he'll be off to Korea for the PWA racing event.
