I have collected stamps most of my life. These are a few from my collection which relate to yachting. Stamps are often issued to commemorate events in history. It was a wonderful way to introduce history to a child. I have been working on an inventory (of thousands of stamps) which has become the work of sisyphus.

I have been reading the news like most of you. Puma is trading the lead with Telefonica and Groupama is now well behind.

Dean Barker won the first event in San Diego in the AC 45’s.

One thought on “STAMPS”

  1. Steve – these are really amazing! Think about it though, carried aboard the yacht Enterprise in 1930…I can imagine a box of these covers sitting below somewhere during the race. Now imagine someone trying to carry even a pocketful of covers on board a modern raceboat or an AC Catamaran. What a different world we live in, love seeing this great little portlight into the past.
