Henrik Bartholin, CEO & R&D

Deckchute was invented by a bowman Henrik Bartholin seeking a way to make shorthanded downwind sailing easy and safe, sailing with his family.

The family spends their summer holidays in Scandinavian waters, sailing long distances in all weather, day and night. 

Henrik has also been racing at high level for many years.
