The story of Gaastra begins in 1897 when Douwe Gaastra set up his own sailing factory in a small town in the Netherlands, Sneek. He soon acquired an international reputation in the world of sailing and this became a brand in itself. In 1996, Gaastra launched its first collection of ready-to-wear in Europe in two specific lines: Gaastra Pro and Gaastra Sportswear. The first is a line of technical clothing for sailing, and the second is intended to be worn down. Gaastra is strongly linked with a nautical heritage and a passion for sailing. With a nautical heritage of over 100 years, it owes its success to quality, innovation and the style of the collections! With strong values defined, such as "play to win", "reject mediocrity" and "dare to challenge", Gaastra is a brand with a strong personality, which offers high-end sportswear styles. Partner to prestigious sailing events such as the Voiles de Saint-Tropez from 2005 to 2010, Gaastra continues its course by sailing to the Caribbean and being an official partner of the Voiles de Saint-Barth! Partner with Gaastra, and go to the promised land!
