America's Cup in San Francisco

Unless you have been living under a rock, (or better yet, spending the past few months sailing the South Pacific) the next America's Cup will be held here on the San Francisco Bay. As long time Bay Area multihull sailors and enthusiast we here at Helms Yachts are very excited.

About two weeks ago we attended a preliminary meeting at the Golden Gate Yacht Club to hear a representative from the America's Cup 34 planning committee speak. While things are still in the early stages, it sure sounds like this are going to be a great series of events leading up to the actual final race.

At the meeting they did mention, that if you would like to get involved or want more information about the 34th Americas Cup, check out the following sites:

New Dragonfly Trimaran Dealer

We are happy announce that Helms Yacht Sales is now an official dealer for Dragonfly Trimarns on the West Coast! Last month at the Anapolous Boat Show, Gary had the privilige of taking a peak at the new Dragonfly 28, and he could not stop talking about how amazing it had turned out. It is a 28' boat that feels much larger, and it is just stunning.

Desinged and built in Denmark for over 30 years, Dragonfly continues to build some of the most amazing trimarans out there. Helms Yachts is the longest running Multihull Brokerage in the Weastern United States, and we have been interested in what Dragonfly has been creating for some time now. So it is exciting to be partnering with a company like Dragonfly that is producing trimarans that not only look stellar inside and out, but are also an amazing sail boat.

We'll have more info about the line of Dragonfly Trimarans on our website soon, but in the mean time please check out the following link for more pictures and sailplans.

Also, check out these great videos for the new Dragonfly 28'


SF Bay Arew Multihull Crew List

One of the most frequent questions we get is - "Do you know anyone that can crew for me this weekend?" We also know that there are plenty of you out there that are interested in going for a sail, but are not quite sure who to ask. So, we decided to put together a running list for people that are both looking to crew and those looking for crew.
