Sunday Stamps - K

1979, Canada
designer: Jon Eby

In 1979, the Canoe-Kayak World Championships were held in Jonquiere Quebec. I have only ever gone kayaking, or canoeing, on a calm lake. This, however, is a not sport for the faint of heart - it involves a course full of rocks, eddies, rapids, fast currents, and high waves. In a kayak the paddler sits with legs in front, facing forward in a closed deck using a double bladed paddle.
A posterized version of a photograph was chosen by designer Jon Eby.

for the letter K - kayak


  1. I'm plesaed that I can make a direct connection to kayaking via a white water centre on my local river even if it is man made. Don't miss the kingfisher here - http://bit.ly/2JfVwnf

  2. I like watching kayakers but that is as close as it gets. I like how the stamp captures the white water. I'm taking to the saddle this week here

  3. I've never gone kayaking, and wouldnt mind to, if someone else was on charge of the 'steering' :)
    Lovely stamp!!


  4. I love the representation of the sea on this stamp.
