Sailing is an adrenaline rush that lives on long after the boat has docked. Make the most of the experience in Helly Hansen performance sailing apparel and sportswear - with the new Hydropower sailing range now with sportswear collection available in Australia and New Zealand.

The world’s most experienced outdoor apparel brand is pleased to announce that the acclaimed Hydropower sailing range features a great sportswear collection that embodies our nautical and Scandinavian heritage in a range of stylish pieces perfect for life on shore this summer. The series of jackets, pants, polos and shorts reflect the progressive image of the technical Hydropower race apparel line but in casual fabrics and designs that can be worn every day.

Renowned for protecting sailors on the harshest oceans of the world, Helly Hansen’s water sports collection also features high performance ocean racing gear, as well as coastal and inshore pieces designed to withstand the extreme and varied weather conditions experienced at sea.

Traditional designs enhanced by innovation and offering outstanding comfort, such as the Offshore jacket and bib deliver excellent wind and water protection for those really seeking to test themselves on the open water.

The recent success of the Helly Hansen winter ’Confidence’ campaign saw the brand become more recognised amongst Australian consumers as a premier outerwear and ski apparel provider. The new sailing range will also utilise this message, reflecting the Confidence that Helly Hansen will provide you in any environment – from Bass Strait to the Yacht Club bar.

Now with our fourth brand store open at Chatswood Chase, Sydney to complement our established Melbourne locations and the launch of www.hellyhansen.com.au HH is now accessible to the broader Australian as well as New Zealand markets.

Can World Sailing learn from dear old Oz?
Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint Some time ago now, Sail-World proposed that ISAF had a really good opportunity at hand when it morphed into World Sailing (WS). Why just lay the drop sheets out and tape up the edges of the windows for a splash of paint, when you could bring out the jackhammers and do a proper reno??? A call was issued for 200,000 sets of goggles and earmuffs to be supplied and for the real work to be commenced.

World Sailing Cup V3 - A Dead Rat in a Shoe or Spring Daffodils?
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphones while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
