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,

WC/EC 2022 Entry

WC/EC 2022 Entry

Dear Fellow Icesailors,

First of all, I would like to wish you and your family a Happy, Prosperous and Joyful New Year with a lot of icesailing.

I would like to remind you that less than two weeks remain to the closing of the Regular Entry for the 2020 Gold Cup World DN Championship and DN European Championship.
It is my firm intention to sail the 2022 WC/EC, except if too strict restrictions make it impossible to do so. I strongly encourage every one of you to make the entry as soon as it is possible. In case of the event cancellation, we will naturally reimburse the entry fee.

For the time being, we do not intend to change our COVID Protocol. We can think of further measures (i.e. having certain kits of rapid test ready in case of suspicious symptoms), but in no case would we consider taking PCR test compulsory before or during the event. On the other hand, I would strongly support taking PCR tests before your departure (as it might be required for travel and accommodation).

The COVID Certificates will be checked at the event check-in.
To avoid congestion at the check-in we would like to process most of the administration paperless, online. As an example, I would draw your attention to the possibility of uploading your COVID Certificate to your profile on our website. This way we can check them beforehand and you’ll get through the check-in faster.

Thank You & Think Ice,

Attila Pataky (M-100)

IDNIYRA EUROPE COVID-19 Protocol

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.
