On 8 May, Åland Post focuses on the historically important postal route across the Sea of Åland with a stamp illustrating the Postal Boat Race. The race is arranged every year in June in commemoration of the hazardous postal journeys and hardships of the farmer-postmen as they conveyed the mail between Sweden and Åland for almost 400 years. The issue is part of the PostEurop 2020 Europa stamp series focusing on ancient postal routes this year.
