Helly Hanson Sponsors The Trofeo SAR Pricesa Sofia Mapfre Sailing Event

The Trofeo SAR Princesa Sofia Mapfre in Spain is one of the largest sailing events on the globe and Helly Hansen is excited to be an official supplier and sponsor of the race.  The company is proud to specifically sponsor the Italian team Desiderato-Trani which is led by Giulio Desiderato and Andrea Trani who are veteran championship sailors.

It will take place from March 29th through April 5th in the bay of Palma de Mallorca, a beautiful island in the Mediteranean.  Sailing teams are already descending on the area to train and prepare for this, the first major racing event of the season.  Each spring, the island locals welcome all of the top sailors from around the world in what has become a big tradition for the island.  This will be their 45th year that they host the race.  The Bay of Palma offers crystal clear water and excellent sailing conditions and the enthusiasm and pageantry offered by the hosts is incomparable.

They set up a great PA and marine stereo system with waterproof marine speakers like these ones so that everyone can hear what is going on during the race. It is important to have waterproof sound gear because you never know what the weather will be like. Check out ROCKTHEBOATMARINESTEREO.com for more information.

At stake is the H.R.H Queen Sofia trophy and excitement runs high!
