On May 27, 1986 Denmark issued this 2.80 kr stamp (Facit #894) depicting sailboats in the Limfjord Channel at the city of Aalborg.

The stamp appears to be intricately engraved. However, the stamp's engraver, Arne Kuehlmann, understood that it wasn't necessary to do this in order to make it appear to be so, to the naked eye. The close up pic shows an area approximately 9 mm x 10.5 mm in size.

Here is another sailboat pictorial cancel. This one is on a picture postcard showing a panoramic view of Riga, Latvia. The postmark commemorates the starting day of the Grand Regatta Columbus '92 in Cadiz, Spain.

The second pic is of the cachet from a Latvian commemorative cover for the same event. It shows the route of the trip, including Riga.

From baltimoresun.com, "In Puerto Rico, the Grand Regatta Columbus '92, a fleet of tall sailing ships and hundreds of pleasure craft will sail from Cadiz, Spain and arrive at San Juan in May 1992."
