Helly Hansen side by side with Melges Europe for the 2022 season
Helly Hansen, the iconic brand that has always been alongside the best athletes and the most important international sailing events, also confirms its presence alongside Melges Europe for the 2022 season.
All the regattas of the Melges World League circuit for the Melges 14, 20 and 32 classes organized by Melges Europe will see the double HH brand in the front row, both on the race course and in the Melges World League paddock on the quay.
Helly Hansen, in addition to providing all its know-how through products dedicated to the world of competition, will title as official technical sponsor, special events and trophies as part of the busy Melges World League 2022 calendar.
The one between Helly Hansen and Melges Europe is a long success story that continues from the first step in 2012.
Helly Hansen, founded in 1877 in Norway, has been at the side of performance for over 140 years and is now present at the highest level in its two reference worlds such as Sailing (in the last America's Cup with American Magic as well as with the US Olympic Team ) and snow (with the Canadian Alpine Ski Team as well as many great ambassadors).
Marco Perazzo, Sales Manager Italy Helly Hansen - "Helly Hansen is happy to continue her path alongside one of the most important, historic and fascinating brands of one design racing sailing worldwide, that of Melges. The partnership with Melges Europe immediately gave us, and will continue to give us, great satisfaction due to the quality, recognized by all, of the events and caliber of the participating sailors. In Melges Europe, from the very beginning, we have found innovative and concrete ideas and visions, what our brand has always been looking for; this has allowed us to give life with full and mutual trust to a very deep synergy that has guaranteed growth and evolution for both. We are therefore proud to be present also for the 2022 season on all the regattas of the Melges World League and to count its appointments among the main competitive events in the Helly Hansen world. "
Luisa Bambozzi, President of Melges Europe - "Being able to count on a collaboration with a brand that does not need to be presented like Helly Hansen and being able to do it for so many years is a source of satisfaction; a lot both for us as organizers and for all the protagonists of the Melges World League who can count on a concrete presence to support their passion. With Helly Hansen, a very special relationship was immediately established that goes far beyond simple commercial logics; a shared passion and a correspondence full of values, among which I would like to underline at least two: attention to every single detail that can lead to superior sports performance and total respect for the environment and the sea, the "playground" without which the our sport, and not only, could live. "
The start of the Melges World League is set for the weekend of 8 - 10 April on the regatta course of the Yacht Club Isole di Toscana at Marina di Scarlino where the Melges 14 and Melges 20 classes will be racing.
