Airfinity sponsors Team Ocean Warrior, the first ever Scandinavian boat to row across the Mid Pacific Ocean

Posted on May 9, 2023

This June will see the inaugural Pacific Challenge kick off, one of the toughest endurance races in the world. Over a dozen boats/teams will spend anywhere from 30 to 50 days rowing a staggering 2,800 miles of ocean, starting from Monterey Bay in California and ending at Kauai island in Hawaii.

We are proud to share that Airfinity is a proud sponsor of Team Ocean Warrior, the first ever Scandinavian boat to row across the Mid Pacific Ocean.

With a crew of just four (including Airfinity's very own Chairman J.P. Leschly Neergaard), Team Ocean Warrior is taking on this challenge to generate awareness about the health of our oceans, fundraise for charity and outline the value of teamwork.

Team Ocean Warrior

Captain of the crew is Lasse Wulf Hansen, a veteran officer in the Danish Army and is one of the most experienced ocean rowers in the world, having rowed the Atlantic Ocean an impressive three times.

Andreas Dyrby is a former rower turned police officer and ultramarathon-runner, who brings grit, an uncanny lust for adventure, and a lot of horsepower to the crew. The team even has an Olympic rower on board, Joachim Sutton, who received a bronze medal in Tokyo 2021. The fourth and final member of the crew is JP Leschly Neergaard, a seasoned veteran (both in athletics and business) who will be contributing extensive leadership, calmness, and, of course, a solid sense of humour.

The Pacific Challenge wonderfully embodies what Airfinity represents; exceptional teamwork, complex problem solving, setting ambitious goals, and the commitment to finding solutions to some of the world's biggest challenges.
