Membership 2020/21

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 their membership and paid our annual fee.

You have to know that the membership fee is our major income, which covers the everyday cost of the Organization. Therefore I cordialy ask you to register and pay your duty.

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 “MEMBERSHIP >> IDNIYRA-EU Membership Signup/Renewal

Because of technical reasons there is a change in the payment method, therefore I ask you to follow the instructions at the end of the registration.

Think Ice,

Attila Pataky

Cancellation of 2021 European Championship

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 to cancel the 2021 DN European Championship.

In order not to leave our community without an International sailing event, we decided at the meeting that IDNIYRA-EU will try to organize a non-ranking EuroCup in the same timeframe.

We will continue to monitor the COVID19 situation and will come with the decision at the end of January.

Be prepared for racing!

Wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Safe, Prosperous, and Happy New Year!

(And a lot of sailing of course)
