Jamaica issued in 1962 stamps for the 9th Central American & Caribbean Games the 6d stamps shows also two dinghies with sail emblem H.
Watercraft Philately 9 page 27 gives that they are of the “Wanderjolle” class, and they are doubtful that this class participated in these games.
I did find a URL . ... -engl.html which give the name “H-jolle” for this class with the sail emblem H most probably she is depicted. The yacht was also produced in East Germany and when Cuba took part in these games than it is possible they used these yachts.
