Lasse rowed the Atlantic Ocean for the first time in the 2018 edition of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Together with his partner, he won the pairs class of that years race. With a crossing time of 49 days, it was a long and strenuous race that left Lasse wanting more.
The following year, Lasse decided to participate in the 2019 race as a part of a four man team and row the Atlantic again. With a crossing time of 37 days and a very different team dynamic, it opend up for an understanding that every race is unique.
This is partly the reason for this years solo crossing. What is it like to do it all ALONE? Rowing oceans has become a part of Lasse and it will be for many years to come.
Lasse has been a soldier in the danish Army for 14 years and is still going strong.
With a career that has been very much affected by the former agressive danish foreing policy, Lasse has been deployed to Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq.
For many years, Lasse's experiences with war left him mentally scarred, but meeting his now wife helped him gain a new and more possitive outlook on life. That's were the first Atlantic row happened and the rest is history.
