Knot Tying Skills
Knot tying skills

As part of Chester Race Week this year, Helly Hansen once again awarded a Grand Prize of a trip on an Ocean Race Yacht with Atlas Ocean Racing between Bermuda and Halifax in May 2020.

To win the Grand Prize, participants were invited to race against each other to tie three classic nautical knots as fast as possible: the clove hitch, the figure eight and the bowline.  The winner of each race won an entry to the contest. The winner was determined by a random draw on  Saturday, August 17.

Helly Hansen is happy to announce that the winner of the Nautical Knots Challenge is Paul Mazzocco from Nova Scotia. This year Paul held the same role as last year’s winner, Kristina Gilbert, serving as a race official for the Bluenose Fleet. His skilled knot tying earned four entries to the draw.

Included in this great prize is up to $2,000 in airfare plus $1,000 retail value in Helly Hansen clothing and accessories, perfect for the adventure. Paul is beyond excited to join Atlas Ocean Racing in Bermuda in May 2020.
