Touching farewell: leaving the known tv-host family

This may sound bloody stupid, and it it may also. Leave the family and put their lives at risk to cross the Atlantic ocean in a rowboat.

nevertheless, this is what former radio and tv host Mads Vangsø and captain in the Army, Lasse Wulff Hansen has set itself for. Exactly why none of them quite yet, but they hope to find it along the way. For the adventure, they could not say no to.

In a specially designed rowboat, they must, alone by the arm and vejrkræfter, try to row across the Atlantic ocean, from La Gomera in the east - Columbus' last stop before the America - to The Caribbean Islands in the west. A journey of a good 5000 miles, and Mike and Lasse expect to complete in around 45 days - if all goes well.
