Dear Fellow Icesailors, After recent meeting with National Secretaries and European Board Members a decision was made that the DN EuroCup can not be held in the originally planned timeframe. Still there is chance to have a European event in this season, therefore we decided to postpone the non-ranking 2021 DN EuroCup till mid of March. The final decision to hold or not to hold this event will be made on end of February. Till that time we will thouroughly monitor the COVID19 situation in Europe and will make a consultancy meeting to ease the decision of the Commodore. Think Ice Attila Pataky (M-100) Commodore
Dear Fellow Icesailors, Though we opened the signup/renewal for the 2020/21 membership in mid October there are very few of you, who renewed the membership and paid the annual fee.

For registering to the upcoming season please click on this link and follow the instructions. Alternatively, the signup can be accessed through the sidebar and also under the menu “OFFICE >> IDNIYRA-EU Membership” Because of technical reason there are change in the payment methods, therefore I ask you to follow …

Dear Fellow Icesailors, At the 2020 Autumn Secretaries Meeting, we decided to monitor the COVID19 situation in Europe till December 19th and make a consultancy meeting that day to ease the decision of the Commodore. Some countries reported on long-lasting travel restrictions, others about limitation of participants on events. There are countries though, where the restrictions are not severe. It is clear today that holding the regatta in 2021 is not feasible. Definitely, we cannot organize a fair and safe event this year, because not all members of our community can travel freely and come to the possible site of the regatta and return home without struggles. Therefore we decided …
As many of you know, we held an online secretaries’ meeting last weekend where we discussed and voted on many of the issues we were unable during the spring meeting.
We are happy to announce that out of the 3 nominees Mihkel Kosk C-45 has won the election for vice-commodore with an overwhelming majority vote and support of the national secretaries.
Mihkel is an active DN and softwater sailor in Dragon Class. He has proved himself as the national secretary for Estonia for about 10 years and lately as a trainer for the estonian Junior DN and IceOptimist team.
The first online vote of IDNIYRA members in Europe and North America for a ballot is finished. We had a very good turnout, thanks to all of you. (NA 64%, EU 75%).
Proposal 1-3 failed, Proposal 4 passed.
