Adi Dassler started to produce sports shoes in his mother’s wash kitchen after his return from World War 1 and registered the brand Adidas on the 18th August 1949. Today the iconic global sports brand is the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second biggest in the World. Adi Dassler's credo was to supply "only the best for the athlete". Top functionality, comfort and design. Tested and proven. This remains at the core of the brand today.
Adidas started off in the sailing market by developing shoes for top sailing athletes in 2007. Since then their designers and technicians, working alongside with some of the World's leading sailors, have created a full range of high performance sailing gear for all kind of sailing passion. Gear for dinghy sailing, yachting, SUP, kayaking and kite surfing. Including a range of high performance offshore Gore-Tex apparel, dinghy racing equipment, Neo's and a high tech range of sailing shoes.
H2eau Sports is proud to represent exclusively in France such an innovative and global brand as Adidas, who focus upon delivering clothing and apparel designed for the true technical sporting aspect of sailing, clearly demonstrated by Adidas involvement with the World Match Racing Tour, the America’s Cup and the Olympics. The French market, said to be worth in excess of €500m annual turnover for marine clothing and equipment, supports one of Europe’s most dynamic marine cultures, where sailing and marine sports form a large part of the leisure infrastructure of the country.
France is well known for possessing many of the top sailors in the world and with new young talent and enthusiasm for the sport increasing, it’s a real privilege to help further expand the Adidas Sailing brand across France. This is now also bolstered by the new and industry exclusive Adidas Sailing Reach Program. A program created to offer significant commercial benefits exclusively to sailing clubs and schools including the opportunity to create re-sale opportunities so that income generated from sales of adidas sailing products can be used to further support the organisation’s internal development projects. This program not only benefits these centres by providing direct access to innovative equipment and creating a unique collection of garments featuring club insignia but also helps to bring new blood to our sport by using the power of an iconic brand with a global fashion attachment.
For full details of this unique program or to register your club or school centre to the program please see the REACH PROGRAM pages.
Aimed at those seeking a ‘no-compromise’ solution against the challenge of remaining comfortable in offshore cruising and race performance whatever the conditions, the OFFSHORE range of jackets, smocks, salopettes and high-bib trousers use a breathable 3-layer GORE-TEX PRO shell and are available in original and contemporary colours.
The INSHORE range offers lightweight and comfortable protection for coastal cruising and day-boating scenarios across all types of boating preference. Fully seam-sealed, durable and waterproof GORE-TEX shells in long and short style jackets are available, and for dinghy sailing and yacht hiking, a smock option available with improved athletic fit and tight-fitting glide-skin neoprene collar.
Priced competitively, Adidas’ own breathable CLIMAPROOF 3-layer shell technology has been used to create the Inshore Spinnaker and Mizzen jacket ranges, that can be combined with Jib high-bib and salopette trouser options, each item offering outstanding fabric protection and extremely durable water repellence. And finally, Skipper 2-layer jackets and Coxswain 2-layer high bib trousers provide the perfect option for day sailors.

The flagship product range from Adidas Sailing is a market leading range of high tech and performance footwear. Shoe developers at adidas have created a range of FOOTWEAR harnessing significant experience gained from other Adidas sports where comfort and grip technology are major contributing factors such as for boxing, hockey and athletics, for example. Performance orientated options include breathable, lightweight, quick-drying deck shoes with non-marking soles, Gore-Tex boots, rubber boots and specialist hiking and trapeze shoes. Adidas Sailing deck shoes are worn by the World’s top athletes from America’s Cup Racers, World Match Racing, Tour de France à la Voile and Vendee Globe sailors. Quite simply the ultimate choice of the pro-sailing athlete.
