Sierra Leone issued in 1987 a set of four stamps for the 16th World Scout Jamboree in Australia. One of these stamps shows us I believe a dinghy type sailboat. If she was used at this Jamboree I don’t know.

16th World Scout Jamboree – 1987-­1988
Cataract Scout Park, New South Wales, Australia, January 1988. 14,434 participants from 84 countries present.
Theme: "Bringing the World Together". First World Scout Jamboree held in the Southern Hemisphere. First official event of the Australian Bicentennial celebrations. Highlights: Challenge Valley obstacle course, the most grueling and the most popular activity at the Jamboree; the Great Aussie Surf Carnival, for which all Scouts were shuttled in over 50 buses to Thirroul Beach.
