Daniel Brighton

Assistant Junior Coach, LYR Mossbourne academy

Dan started rowing when he was 13yrs old, having been dragged to every regatta in the midlands to watch his parents race. After having no initial interest, he eventually started to see its appeal, and started training as a lightweight. His efforts were rewarded with a Henley Regatta qualification for the Fawley Cup in 2005. His career ended after a short stint at university. He started working as a community coach for LYR in 2014.

Dan has since made himself the go-to man for loading rowing machines into the back of our vans, after learning the art during his three years packing furniture for a moving company. 

No ones dares leave the van in a mess if Dan is scheduled to be driving it that week.
