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)
