Helly Hansen has launched its new sailing collection with ‘something for everyone’ from the offshore racer to the inshore cruiser and those aspiring to a marine lifestyle.

The company has taken its inspiration from Ægir, the Norse god of the sea with the collection that includes the Ægir Race Jacket and Ægir Race Salopette aimed at those taking part in offshore races.

“This jacket’s fabric has been put through multiple trials – from lab tests to the torture test known as the Volvo Ocean Race,” explained Øyvind Vedvik, category MD for sailing at Helly Hansen.

“It is simply the most waterproof fabric the company has tested while still allowing for breathability.”

Both the jacket and salopette are available in a women’s version and constructed using the Helly Tech composite membrane, designed to give four-ply protection in a three-ply fabric.

For the in-shore sailor, Helly Hansen has introduced its HP Foil line for men and women: the HP Foil Smock Top and HP Foil Jacket.

The range is constructed using Helly Tech Professional three-ply fabric.

“With our cruising and inshore racing lines, we wanted to reach out further to the offshore crowd,” said Mr Vedvik. "Both the Ægir Race and HP Foil collections offer a new choice for watersport enthusiasts who love the intensity, but desire ease of movement.”
