Online Entry “Problems” UPDATE

Dear Sailors,
tonight I again looked after the problems some of you had when registering. They found themselves in a not ending loop after typing in their sail number and ID. This is not a bug of the entry procedure, this is due to the browser safety settings on the devices of the sailors. Browser of today sometimes prevent automatically the internal forwarding, sometimes it is set by the users, more or less with intend. The online entry programming cannot be adapted to the many browsers on the market in different versions and numerous different user settings. That would be a Sisyphus work. For the next season I will look for a solution to prevent blocking.
Now I researched following browsers and was able to do an entry!!:
iPad (Apple):
Safari / 1st try
Firefox / 1st try

Chrome / 2nd try
Firefox / 2nd try

Smartphone (Android):
Chrome / 2nd try

The absolute only solutions I now can suggest are:
– follow the loop and do it twice (should work in most cases)
– take an other browser
– take an other device
– take an other device and with an other browser
– empty your browser cache
– set your personal browser settings to “Standard”

Wish you success, Godie

Commodore’s Message

Dear Fellow Iceboaters,

As the new Commodore IDNIYRA Europe e.V. I would like to welcome all of you in the new icesailing season. As you may know Jörg Bohn and Christian Seegers left the Board after our Secretaries Meeting in Riga. Here I would like to thank the great contribution they made for the class. It was a great pleasure to work together with such generous people as Jörg and Christian. We will miss them in the Board.

The new season is already here and some of our sport-mates on the north already are on the ice having fun and doing training for international racing events. Please get your stuff ready, refresh your skills and knowkedge of rules to have a joyful and safe icesailing season.

You already may get a post from your National Secretary  with the recent ballot about to make (or not to make) change in the Official Specification to allow alternate material for the halyard. The idea behind this change is that the rope is cheaper, lighter and stronger than steel wire and the terminations are easy to do. If you haven’t received the vote blank yet, please contact your National Secretary asking for empty ballot template, fill and sign it. Please send the scanned copy to your Secretary for further processing.


The deadline is end of November.

You can also download the ballot from the link below.




We intend to have other changes in this season, too.

It turned out that it will be illegal to use 10 runners during the European Championship. Thus we should be restricted to nine runners only. The reason we have to do this is that this restriction is included in the Official Specifications, which is the document (together with the Specification Management System) that should be compulsory for both Organisations (American and European) and any change in those can be introduced by class vote only. Unfortunately we missed the class vote when introduced this rule to use on EC 🙁

My personal opinion, that the number of equipment (runners, sails, etc.) used during the Continental events should be more on the decision of the organising authorities, than regulated in the Official Specifications. The OS should deal with the technical parameters of the legal equipment only.

There are more need-to-change items in our governing documents (inconsistencies, obsolete regulations, etc.), therefore the two Governing Committees started to review, harmonise and rewrite those documents. Your remarks, suggestions would be warmly welcomed in this work.

It is a long lasting dilemma, that our members are over-aged and male-dominated and we should do something to make our class more attractive for the ladies as well as for the younger generation.

This year on the initialisation of our Vice-Commodore Maciej Brosz we founded Perpetual Trophies for Women for WC and for EC. Our American friends did the same for their Continental Championship. The trophies will be awarded for the three best ladies if more than five women are participating on an event. In case of less than five female participants  the Champion’s Trophy will be awarded only.

Thus Ladies be brave and come to the Championships! You can win a real good-looking trophy!

The Junior Program started more than a decade ago in Sweden and it passed exactly ten years that the European Board officially designated a Junior Program Manager. The program is a real success. We have more and more youngsters participating in the races and even few of them are competing at the senior championships. We should support them. Financially and morally.

Also we should think about, how to make our sport more popular and attractive for possible newcomers and sponsors. Using of more effective communication and marketing tools in our webpage, widen our social networks, introduce new tracking and broadcasting applications is the answer to that question. We will do our best to introduce them in the forthcoming seasons. On this EC we will do tracking on voluntary basis. The solution we had chosen is KWINDOO. We want to test how this application is working at our conditions of racing (cold weather, high speed, …).

More details you can find on: http://kwindoo.com

Would you have any new idea or suggestion to make our organisation better please do not hesitate to contact me 🙂

So dear Iceboaters, I wish you a very successful iceboating season.
