Commemorative Set of Stamps "Sailing Tourism"
Τρίτη, 4 Ιουνίου 2013

Greece. A magical place, famous and loved for its many and varied attractions, has in recent years welcomed sailing enthusiasts from every corner of the globe, particularly during the summer, when the Aegean and Ionian fill with white sails gliding over the crystal clear sea. Weather conditions, particularly in the Aegean, are hailed as the best in the world for yachting, while Greece is one of the sunniest regions in the temperate zone.

The growth of marine tourism has also been boosted by regattas, purely competitive in origin, which over the years have become major yachting events! To celebrate this important aspect of Greek culture, Hellenic Post issued the Commemorative Set of “Sailing Tourism”.
