Clarification on the COVID Protocol 2022

Dear Fellow Icesailors,

I have heard rumors that some of our members are interpreting the IDNIYRA-EUROPE COVID-19 Protocol as not mandatory because it uses the word “should” instead of “must”.
Now I don’t want to start a debate about English grammar because this is not that platform. Rather, let’s look at what the intent was when this document was adopted.

We want to host safe events for all participants in an epidemiologically uncertain environment.
We can only do this if all participants are adequately protected against the COVID virus. And this is clearly a complete vaccination.

We require this, as in the case of an infection, it is very unlikely that anyone will get sick so severely that they will have to be hospitalized and consequently the local authorities will need to interrupt the event and everyone will be quarantined as a contact person.
That would be the situation that no icesailor would want.

That is why I ask everyone to keep the spirit of the COVID Protocol in mind and not to start hair-splitting.

To make it clear throughout the text, the phrase “should have” is to be understood as “must have”.

I apologize to everyone for the inconvenience.

Think Ice,

Attila Pataky (M-100)

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,
