3 Boleslaw Mazurkiewicz - The Grand Old Polish Sailor We, all members of the International Council of Cruising Yachts (I.C.C.Y.) lost our Founding Member

Prof. Dr. Boleslaw Mazurkievicz

an outstanding character always dedicated o principles of honour, courtecy and generosity. But at the same time he was a very courageous man who never hesitated to face the acute problems of the day.

So he acted when Touren-Yachtclub von Deutschland (TYvD) with Commodore Karl-Heinz Bielenberg planned to visit Polish yachtclubs and harbours in 1973. Fortunately Karl-Heinz met Boleslaw Mazurkiewicz who was the President of Polish Sailing Association at the same time. He felt immediately enthusiastic about such projects. As a result of many efforts and negotiations Boleslaw succeeded in welcoming not les than 120 German yachts in Gdansk and Gdynia.

To value this outcome the political circumstances at the time must be taken into consideration. The iron curtain was extremely closed and western visitors were not welcome ro East European countries at all. Under such conditions Boleslaw demonstrated that it is worth while to struggle even under worst conditions.

This way he encouraged boating people all over Europe and especially Commodore Bielenberg to continue and to intensify their efforts to visit foreing countries asd clubs.

The spirit of making friends from the sea was born. Boleslaw´s successful Yacht Meeting in 1973 was a very important pulse to achieve this feeling. His greatest memorial he left us. For this we are infinitely greateful to him.
