Helly Hansen & Great Lakes Sailing Co.

13_newWe are now an official dealer for Helly Hansen Sailing Gear!

So why did we decide to become a retailer for Helly Hansen gear? After all, our bread and butter is charters and sailing school.

Simple, really.  Our customers are sailors.  Some are old salts with all kinds of tales to tell, and some have never even stepped foot on a sailboat before.  But the one thing they have in common, in addition to an affinity for sailing, is they need and want quality sailing gear.

Stay Dry with Helly Tech
Helly Tech is the waterproof, breathable outer layer between you and the elements.  It’s unique membrane stops water molecules from penetrating, but lets moisture escape, keeping the wet outside and you comfortable on the inside.

The story of Helly Hansen started in 1877. After many years at sea, norwegian captain Helly Juell Hansen and his wife Maren Margarethe began producing oilskin jackets, trousers, sou’westers and tarpaulins, made from coarse linen soaked in linseed oil.
