2022 Under Sail Limited Edition Medallion & Stamp Cover PNC.

Sailing is a popular pursuit in ocean-loving Australia, where towns and cities hug the 34,000 kilometres of our stunning coastline.

Sailboat racing has long had a foothold in our waters, and the first yachting clubs were established here in the mid 19th century.

Now, more than 360 yacht clubs around Australia foster and support yachting, and on weekends fleets of watercraft can be regularly seen in regattas and club races.

arguably, the sport's popularity has been aided  by the high-profile Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race and Australia's successive Olympic triumphs on the water. Yet, there is no doubt that the attraction is also fuelled by the sheer exhilaration of skimming across the water while under sail.

The stamp on this cover shows the crew of the 16-foot skiff using the trapeze to counter-balance the pressure of a strong southerly blowing on Lake Macquarie.

Issued as a limited edition medallion, the uncirculated Brass & Nickel medallion is housed in a beautifully designed card with a circular window revealing the medallion's reverse and obverse designs.

The design includes a coloured sailboat and is post marked First Date of Issue 11th January 2022, Sydney NSW 2000.

The medallions obverse features the inscription "Under Sail".
