For the first time the Velas Latinoamérica, the Regatta around South America from Brasil to Mexico via Argentina and Chile, will stop in
Curaçao. As a part of the Velas LatinoAmérica series it’s all about strengthening bonds between the many Navies and nations participating,
an idea that extends beyond the 1500+ crew members to the many thousands of visitors expected to descend on the city for a celebration
like no other. To commemorate this spectalur event, the artist Nathalie Antonia, designed the ‘Velas 2022’ stamp series, which consist of the
visiting ships; Cat.2 – Capitán Miranda, 289c – 11 Países, 464c – ARM Cuauhtémoc, and 496c – Cisne Branco. From tall ships to related
vessels, they can all be found in the port of Curaçao. Each ship has its unique story and with this festival their sails complement the
architecture of the city of Curaçao wonderfully alongside parades, music, dancers, and artists.
