Dani Pascoe is Australia’s only female International Judge. She comes from a sailing family and has been sailing since she was six years old. She started judging in 2005, became a National Judge in 2010 and an International Judge in 2013. Dani has both sailed and judged at the Australian Women’s Keelboat Regatta in the past and will this year be the chairperson of the jury. Her contribution to the lecture series last year was well received and she has been asked back this year to present again on rules and protests.
