Sweden in 1974 issued a stamp from a booklet which shows us a yacht regatta on the west coast of Sweden, have not any information on the yachts depict.

The Swedish Post Office supplied the following information by the stamp:

The Swedish west coast stretches 300 km south from the Norwegian border and includes the provinces Bohualän and Salland. Gothenburg, on the west coast, is the second biggest town in Sweden and has the largest container harbour in Scandinavia.
The west coast has been a favourite holiday place for many years, where people go swimming and sail. There is a regatta somewhere along the coast almost every weekend in the summer.

Sweden 1974 0.65 ore sg 803, scott1087.
