Like Rod Woods, Dan Rossen is also a seasoned offshore sailor who has entered this year’s 73rd Newport to Ensenada International Yacht Race as a double-handed entry. And with his perennial racing partner Richard Whitley he is also a past class winner on their B-32 Problem Child. In fact, Dan claims they have won the DH trophy on the N2E some 7 times, more than half the number of times he has also sailed this race in full-crew mode.
Rod Woods has just a little experience with racing offshore: he reckons on average he raced his Olson 30 over 38 weekends a year for many years, and he has completed some 33 Newport to Ensenada races. So at age 79 he’s ready to throttle back just a little yet still be part of the race action in this year’s 73rd annual NOSA event.
