Dear Fellow Iceboaters,
I’ve noticed that there are some uncertainties regarding the IDNIYRA Europe Membership, therefore I would like to clear some frequently asked questions, which may arise.
Q: Who can become a member of IDNIYRA EU?
A: National Organisations, who applied for membership and paid the membership fee can become ordinary members of IDNIYRA EU.
Any natural person, who is a member of his/her National Organization, reached the age of majority, registered on the idniyra.eu website and paid the membership fee can become an extraordinary member.
Q: How can someone become a member?
A: You have to sign up on the IDNIYRA EU website and pay the membership fee. The webpage link is here: Membership sign-up
Q: How much does the membership cost?
A: It will be decided each year at the Secretaries Meeting. This year the membership fee is 25 EUR.
Q: Do the Juniors who intend to become members have any discount on this fee?
A: The Juniors can become members free of charge, however – because of technical reasons – the Juniors shall also pay the fee during the sign-up procedure, but it will be reimbursed to them in the Entry Fee of WC/EC.
Q: When should the membership fee be paid?
A: Any time in the year, but irrespectively the date of payment, the membership will expire on the 31st of October each year. In order to have a continuous membership status, the fee has to be paid before the membership expires, i.e. before 31 October each year.
Q: Will double fee be applied for late payment?
A: No. However, if the payment is done after the registration of WC/EC is closed, the sailor cannot register for the event in due time, thus he/she might have to pay double Entry Fee according to the NOR.
Q: Do the Juniors have to become members of IDNIYRA Europe?
A: All Juniors intending to participate in the IDNIYRA WC/EC have to sign-up for a membership.
Q: Will participating in the JWC/JEC require a membership?
Q: What additional rights does an IDNIYRA Europe member have?
A: The member has the right to compete in the WC/EC, can vote on DN Class issues, will have a registered account on the idniyra.eu website, and will receive privileged information accordingly.
