National Secretaries’ Meeting 2021 – The Class Welcomes DN China!

Icesailing on the Jinling Reservoir
Chinese DN Fleet Storage

Our family of icesailing nations grew with a new member in Asia!

This weekend at our annual National Secretaries’ Meeting we had some very special guests in attendance:
On behalf of the Chinese DN Fleet, Mr. Qiguang Wang chairman of the Jinzhou Yachting and Sailing Association and Jinzhou Bay Sailing Club, Mr. Ming Wu director of the club and Ms. Di Zhu, Chinese-Canadian interpreter was also invited to aid throughout the process.

As they told us, in the past three years, during the introduction, training and participation in- and hosting of various icesailing competitions, they stumbled across pictures and videos of DN iceboats on the Internet. The appearance, structure, speed and specifications of the DN immediately aroused everyone’s interest. In 2019, they purchased plans from North America and manufactured a few of China’s first iceboats of the class. Last year contact has been established with IDNIYRA – Europe and official talks began on joining the Organisation. We received their application of membership earlier this year.
At the same time, they have also received strong support and approval from the Chinese Sailing and Windsurfing Association. They plan to join our association as a local organisation, and at the same time, continue to promote the DN icesailing across the country.

After an impressive presentation and interview, the national representatives unanimously approved the membership application.

We wholeheartedly welcome the Chinese Fleet in our Class Association!

2021 Ordinary Annual (Secretaries’) Meeting

Dear Fellow Iceboaters,

The 2021 Ordinary Annual Meeting of the National Secretaries and IDNIYRA EU Board Members will be held online on 24-25 April.

This is two weeks earlier than originally agreed because some participants asked to move the date, which request was considered to assure the maximum number of participants.

As you may know from our Organisation Rules, that the Letters to the Board are accepted six weeks before the Meeting, which period would end this weekend, but in order to provide a chance for everyone to be heard we extend this period by one week.

Please send your thoughts and ideas by the end of next week (21 March) to commodore@idniyra.eu with a copy to secretary@idniyra.eu, indicating the subject “Letters to the Board”.

Think Ice,
Attila Pataki (M-100)
Commodore
