About Stamp

The third and final set of stamps in the Small Craft series - Pleasure Craft - will be issued on July 18, 1991. While the first two sets in the series focussed on boats as essential modes of transportation and commerce, this last segment displays how boats have evolved into a recreational pastime for millions of Canadians. As Canada is bounded by three oceans and is blessed with a large network of inland and rivers, it is not surprising that the mode of transportation which originally opened up this vast country to the Voyageurs is now a pleasurable sporting activity. The sailing dinghy known as the Laser is the creation of Bruce Kirby and Ian Bruce, constructed in 1970 as a prototype for an American regatta. They wanted a small, portable, two-purpose boat: a pleasure craft and a racing machine. They achieved it. The centreboard, the rudder, and other equipment were designed to suit both the novice and the expert. The stamps were designed by Louis-André Rivard and Bernard Leduc, who combined the transversal frame design of each boat in the foreground with a relevant scenic background.
