About SV SKY's Admiral & Captain

Johannes "Jopie" (pronounced yopie) Helsen, who is the captain, is a cancer survivor. He was born in the Netherlands and grew up in Warmond, on the Kaag lakes. He is a 2nd generation boat builder and yacht designer and has been in the marine industry for 55 years. Heidi Trilsch grew up sailing and has years of cruising experience, her stepmother is a lymphoma survivor. Both have been involved in charities and have decided to combine these two interests into a high-seas adventure that will act as a cancer fundraiser. Their hope is that thousands will follow SV SKY on Facebook, their website and donate.

As a lymphoma survivor, I am so appreciative of all efforts to help accelerate cancer cures and improve the quality of life for patients and their families. I am thankful to Jopie and Heidi, and to all who are supporting this campaign to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. - Gary Jobson
