Dear Fellow Icesailors,

A new season starts soon and we have to be ready not only with our ice sailing gear but also be prepared to cope with the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. I hope that all of you are healthy and not influenced by COVID infection or any serious consequences. This year we intend to organize the WC/EC, but to keep our community safe we have to introduce some protocols, which has to be obeyed by all participants of the event. Below you can find the COVID-19 Protocol. Please read it carefully and be prepared for the safe season and for participation in IDNIYRA events.

Think Ice,
