He is a professional sailor in high-performance boats and German 49er Champion 2020. Lukas is currently training for the 69F Youth Foiling Gold Cup and the WASZP Worlds. As an Optimist sailor, Lukas achieved 7th in the Worlds in 2013 and was awarded Second Best Nation. He then graduated to 29er boats, taking part in the World Sailing Youth Worlds in New Zealand.

In 2017, he started a four-year campaign for the Olympic Games in the 49er, but tried foiling and became absolutely hooked.
