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 Commodore,

    thank you for publishing the NoR .

    Here are two questions, which have been discussed within many sailors.
    1. how may races will be discarded if 16, or 12 or 9 races are completed? We still have time to think about the proper answer. Why we have the discards, why we are creating especially in this long event with the biggest number of races a competition that allows us to discard so many (I guess 3 in this championship) our worst performances but retain our best.
    2. this question is related to the insurance claims (Point nr 8 of NoR) which in some cases are far away from real prices. For example runners – we all know that they are different and its very difficult to agree with 450E in case of a damage for a hardened slot runner with a carbon body. 500 E for a plank is OK but only for an old style one. A lot of sailors use modern, high – tech runner planks which cost much more. Why we are forced to accept these old unrealistic prices. Compensation for the damaged equipment should be based on the price list of the builder or on an invoice and should be not enforced by Organisation, which supposed support and protect their members and not to work against them. I think that in interest of all sailors the prices should be modified and should be taken only as a reference because, as we know exactly, every case is different.
    Best Regards

  1. Dear Karol,

    Thanks for noting that.

    The throwouts are regulated in IDNIYRA By-Laws, see point 5/d.

    Considering the limitation of insurance claims on material damage there is an SM decision in force from 2012, which we should obey.
