“Les Voiles de Saint Barth won us over with its first edition that we watched closely from the outside. This major sailing event is aimed at the world’s finest racing, Maxi and Classic yachts. This prestigious yachting corresponds to the image of our brand. Many yachts from North America, as well as from Latin America sail in the Caribbean in April, and this is a way for our group to be more present in these markets.”

Gaastra’s yachting partnerships include Voiles de Saint-Tropez and Copa del Rey. The company will be presenting a new “Voiles de Saint Barth” range in early 2011.

François Tolède, the organiser of the Voiles de Saint Barth is obviously pleased to be able to announce the arrival of Gaastra.

“The Dutch Group’s strategy fits in perfectly with our own. The power of marketing and the image of Gaastra will help us to step up our promotion of the event to British and American yachtsmen. The prestigious yachts that sail in St. Barts convey an image of elegance, excellence and quality, which matches perfectly the aims of Gaastra”.
