I am sure there are many other sets of sailing related stamps, but the blurb on the back of this 1981 FDC mentions the America's Cup.

More than just the mention on the back, the 55c stamp was of the 12 metre yacht "Australia" which unsuccessfully challenged for the America's Cup in 1977 & 1980.

With Dan "The Man" relaxing the Covid rules, I was able to go down to my P O Box & it was overflowing with goodies.

I think I might have to do my report over a few stages, starting with this one from the UK:

The "PLEASE DO NOT BEND" notation and the "FRAGILE" tape seem ironic when we look at the crumpled envelope Brad received.

I recently received a small envelope from St Petersburg in comparable condition. It contained a Maldives postcard, originally set by the vendor to his home address while he was on holiday in the Maldives. Now the card shows more evidence of its most recent journey through the post than it showed for its original journey. ;)

Yes is does look like it was soccered around the mail centre's floor.

I think the sender may have anticipated this treatment & the contents were well protected.

Hope your postcard was not too badly damaged.

Margaret Olley's Home

Beloved Australian artist Margaret Olley (1923-2011) was renowned for her Paddington home-cum-studio, which was recreated in a purpose-built centre in the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah to honour her memory.

While the Paralympics are still fresh in our memory, I'd like to share a brief "Letter to the Editor" that I recently submitted to the Saturday Paper. It didn't get published there, but perhaps sharing it here will modestly spread the message:
.
The Paralympics was wonderful viewing. Now when we meet a person with
a noticeable disability we can think: “What are your special abilities?”

.
That's surely a Happy Day message...

The last batch from my PO Box visit on last week end, starting with a signed America's Cup postcard from Stampboarder towraji:


S&amp;N Austral Series Postcard signed by Australia II crew member Will Baillieu.
S&N Austral Series Postcard signed by Australia II crew member Will Baillieu.

Americas Cup Postcard 2.jpg

Will Baillieu (born 15 August 1951) is an Australian rower. He competed in the men's coxed four event at the 1972 Summer Olympics. He is a brother of former Premier of Victoria, Ted Baillieu.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Baillieu

I find it a bit strange that Will Baillieu's wikipedia does not mention Australia II & the America's Cup victory. It makes one think that it is a different Will Baillieu, but he is linked to the Australia II website.

If Galileo were alive today, I'm confident he would accept the scientific evidence of anthropogenic global warming, and the increasing negative impacts it is having on our climate. Those who refuse to accept that scientific evidence, for reasons that are entirely unscientific, are the modern analogues of Galileo's opponents four centuries ago.
