Beside this static information there are many dynamic functions like online entry, online insurance list, online ballot, a news system you can subscribe to for email and pushover mobile service. You’ll find upcoming events from the calendar and a seamlessly integration in facebook where the news posts were published simultaneously, you can like and send to friends. There is of cause also a market for iceboaters where you can sell your gear or search for things. Not to forget the icereport section where you also can post to from your mobile devices. Please use the icereport, cause this is very important for the whole DN-community. Runnertracks are now online readable and the yearbook can be ordered from IDNIYRA. If you have Regatta announcements or relating information you can post it in REGATTA News.
There is quite more to explore, so go to http://www.idniyra.eu and register an account cause the old accounts are not valid any more.
Please have a look at the Right-of-Way pages before you go icesailing at the beginning of the season. All sailors are good sailors, yes we know. But refreshing the knowledge of the sailing rules is a safety contribution for all.
This season the dutch fleet will party their 50th birthday. They will celebrate this the 23rd November at Fort Wierickerschans, Zuidzijde, Bodegraven, Netherlands. For more information see our event calendar and the dutch website http://www.ijszeilen.nl
As you all may have seen, or not seen at all, our new website was not online the last three weeks. I had to struggle with with a hack by script kiddies, who tried to use our site for their illegal spam sending and offering of goods which never will arrive at the customers.The hack was done by cracking weak passwords of forum users. I now have deleted all old user accounts and the old forum. I had to go through the whole file structure of the webserver to eliminate the spambot. You can’t imagine what frustrating work it was. Luckily I could figure it out and rescue the nearly completed new website.
The new season can come. I’m looking forward to start.
