NOR EC 2019 (With Important Change!!)

Dear Fellow Icesailors,

Please find the Modified NOR for the 2019 DN European Championship and EuroCup.

We needed to make some changes in it because receiving a late warning from our lawyers and because of that, I decided to suspend the reorganization procedure in our European Community. Recently the lawyers are studying the case and hopefully will come up with a solution soon. It was just a warning and doesn’t mean that we did something illegal.

Unfortunately, we are now in time constrain because the NOR was already due to publish and the registration procedure will start within less than three weeks. Therefore as a temporary solution, we have to revert to the old system giving time to the lawyers to find out whether we have to change anything in our continental documents.
I would underline that it is a temporary action only and we as the European DN Community continue supporting the changes decided earlier. Definitely, we will find a solution to proceed according to the agreement made between the two Continental Organisations in April this year.
What should be done in the next few weeks?
1. We suspend the collection of EU Membership Fee on our website. Who already paid will receive back the amount paid.
2. The NOR is modified and sent out. The so-called IDNIYRA EU Fee, equal to 45,- €, is included again.
3. Get a detailed legal view on the situation and the draft of the accordingly adjusted Constitution.
Only after all this done we can continue the reorganization process.
Sorry for the caused inconvenience, but it is better making one step back now than run into some difficulties later.
Your Commodore,
Attila Pataky

Dear friends,

I started to assign the insurance-IDs for EC 2019 today.

Please keep in mind:

Insurances (or requests for a SEI) received until 02. January 2019; 24:00 (CET) will be checked for a regular entry – all later received insurances (or requests for SEI) will be checked and get an Insurance-ID to be able to make a Late-Entry without checking of the insurance at regatta-check-in.

Some Website Cleaning

Dear Iceboaters,

the next days I have to do some cleaning to prepare the new IDNIYRA-EU membership database.

  1. All advertisements older than 2 years will be deleted. If there are users who still want to have them active should setup new advertisements after 15th of Oct.
  2. Users already in the database not having a correct sail number as username or a clear name will not remain without membership rights, but only for this season as a transition period. Then They will be deleted before 15th of Oct.
  3. Users who already have their sail number as username will be deleted too. This is due to technical reasons, otherwise they are not able to signup for new membership. They can register anew with their sail number beginning 15th of Oct.

EU Membership Fee due soon

Dear Fellow Ice sailors,


You may have heard from your National Secretary that we have changed our European membership structure this summer. It was made by online vote after our Secretaries Meeting in Budapest.

In the new system there will be no more EU-Fee, but rather a European Membership Fee, which we promised to lower in order to let most of the European sailors to pay it and become a European Member with certain privileges even if they do not intend to participate in AC, EC or WC.

The decision made is read as follows:

“The European Membership Fee will be 25 EUR if paid until 31 October 2018, 24:00. Late payment after that deadline will be on double amount, i.e. 50 EUR.”

Because of some technical reasons, the timing had to be changed to the following:


  • Membership online-entry will go online on 15.10.2018 (Godie will setup a separate section in our website)
  • The fee to be paid until 01.12. is 25,- €, (this is the date when the registration for EC 2019 starts)
  • After that deadline, a double fee is to be paid, i.e. 50,- €


All EU-Member privileges are listed in our new Organisation Rules, which you can find under link:

All background material can be found in the new Runner Tracks. You can find it at:


Think Ice and keep your runners sharp,
