Whether you’re into inshore, offshore, dinghy, or coastal cruising, Helly Hansen wants to know what you love about sailing. To participate in their #JoinOurCrew contest, just upload a photo and description that captures your favourite aspect of sailing.

The Grand Prize is a trip to sail Newport, Rhode Island, US from August 12-16 2015. One winner from each category of sailing (Offshore, Inshore, Dinghy, Coastal Cruising) will win this unforgettable trip where everything will be taken care of, allowing you to concentrate on what you love – sailing. A Helly Hansen crew will keep you busy during the days with on-water activities and a meet-up with Helly Hansen Ambassador and world champion sailor Tim Healy making this a dream weekend for a true sailor.

OK, so everyone can’t win the dream trip to Newport, but mope not! Each week during the competition HH will hand out stylin’ nautical gear prizes.

“My favourite thing about offshore racing is how free it makes you feel. The attached photo was taken during the 2010 Chicago-Mackinac race. At 333 miles (289.4 nautical miles), the Race to Mackinac is the oldest annual freshwater distance race in the world.” – Natalie Baddour, Ottawa.

 

"Freedom and control of your life. When sailing you are in this small universe, in which anything besides the crew, boat, water doesn't matter." –Anna, Toruń, Poland.

“I absolutely love the adrenaline rush I get from flying across the water on the Nacra 17. Even in little wind, there’s plenty of action – but when the wind and the waves pick up… it’s game on. The teamwork needs to be impeccable and built on trust. We’re all smiles after coming back to shore after a day like this!” – Nikola Girke, Vancouver.
