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,


Attila Pataky

my personal opinion

Dear friends,

After the decision of our Commodore for the site of WC/EC 2018 confusing informations were posted  on this page (WC/EC Primary site update) and as far as I know in several social media by some sailors from Estonia, because they were not happy with the decision.

They explained how nice the ice would be in Estonia, how nice the weather forecast would be for Estonia ……

But at the end it came out that the decision of the Commodore was perfect, because in Estonia came more than too much snow and way too cold temperatures – we would not have sailed a meter.

I could not find any statement from the wrong guys about that.

The wrong information was just uncommented left.

I want to state out, that in my mind this is not fair to the commodore .

In my mind it would have been good sportsmanship to tell via the same media that the commodore was right – an apology I do not dare to expect.

Have a nice summer and please think about your postings.
