This year anew, Gaastra supports the legendary Italian Sailing Team Azzurra: Equipped with professional sailing clothing from the technical Gaastra Pro Sailing Gear and nautical Sportswear, Team Azzurra of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda sets course for the new international sailing season 2012 with a new Azzurra TP52 class boat. Constructions have started last november 2011 in the Spanish King Marina yacht building shipyard headed by King Marine’s manager and engineer Pablo Santarsiero. The first TP52 regatta constitutes the Palma Vela 2012 as a tune up event, followed by the Conde de Godó Barcelona in may, the Sardinia Cup at homelike Porto Cervo in june, the Copa del Rey Palma in july and the Valencia Cup in october.

So, the rich Azzurra history will be upheld with a new livery this regatta season: Founded in the early 80s by H.H. The Aga Khan and Gianni Agnelli, the Azzurra Sailing Team competed firstly in 1983 at the Louis Vuitton Cup Newport, followed by the Sailing World Championships 1985. The Azzurra Team aroused new enthusiasm for sailing sports in Italy. In a word: What Ferrari is to Formula 1 fans, Azzurra is to Italian yachting enthusiasts! The greater was the excitement, when the sailing team celebrated its comeback after seventeen years at the Louis Vuitton Trophy 2009 and recently won over at the Audi MedCup Circuit 2011. We are looking forward to a new season with sailing team Azzurra in professional Gaastra Sailing Gear and sporty Gaastra Sailing Fashion  Good Speed!
