FROM KIEL TO THE WORLD
THE WORLD’S BIGGEST SAILING EVENT
It's a very special project: Since this year Gaastra is official sponsor and partner of Kieler Woche, the world's most important sailing event. As the largest international sailing event Kieler Woche is not only a set date for international participants and Olympians. But it also fascinates 3.5 million visitors with concerts, parties and plenty of other activities beside the races.
The main goal for Kieler Woche and Gaastra is to make maritime lifestyle and sailing sport come alive for all visitors. Discover our new collection, exclusively designed for Kieler Woche. Next to our famous colourful polo shirts, its the functional jackets and softshell jackets that will make real Kieler Woche fans and visitors enthusiastic.

135 YEARS OF KIELER WOCHE
We met Anke Scheuermann for an interview at the Gaastra flagship store in Hamburg’s HafenCity. The Aachen-born woman is a passionate sailor since 1984 and the store manager of the Gaastra flagship store in the Hafencity for almost two years. We talked about her brand new women's sailing team HOTQUITO and their goals for the International German Championship as part of the “Kieler Woche 2016”. Last but not least she explained why sailing seems to be such a male-dominated sport.
