In 1996 a group of Polish sailors from Hamilton, Ontario decided to create the first Polish sailing club in Canada. We were already sailing in Canadian clubs, but we dreamed of sailing based on Polish teachings and traditions, and with our Polish friends. We chose the name "Zawisza Czarny", referring to the rich Polish historical traditions associated with this knight, as well as the great Polish tall ship...
The Polish-Canadian Yacht Club "Zawisza Czarny" was created to serve the needs of Ontario sailors of Polish origin.
We welcome ALL enthusiasts of sailing. Our boats take regular part in most of the regattas on Lake Ontario and beyond. Our sailors compete sucessfully at the World Championship level. Beyond sailing, we are very keen on preserving traditions and culture of the sea and our own Polish heritage.
