Dear friends,



this is an in advance information concerning registration for WC/EC 2016.


In the coming season we have a novelty.

At the National Secretaries Meeting we introduced the so called “Early-Entry”.

This means, every sailor who makes an online-registration within the first 14 days after registration has opened is allowed to pay a reduced entry-fee.


Please keep in mind that you only can register with an Insurance-ID.

Please be aware that this time WC/EC will be in January and registration opens on 01. December 2015 (12:00 CET). So “Early-Entry” will be possible until 15. December 2015 (24:00 CET).


Further information you will get – as usual – in the NOR, which I plan to post on this web-site latest on 25. October 2015.


You can send your confirmation of cover from now on.


Thanks and Think Ice

Dear friends,
Please check in time that you will have a proper TPL-insurance for icesailing. This is not only necessary for the “big events” like WC and/or EC, but also for sailing during the rest of the season. I guess that every participant of WC and EC will try to get some meters of ice under his runners before travelling there.


Once again the items for a proper certificate of insurance:
1. the certificate must be in English language.

  1. the liability cover must be at least 500.000,– €
  2. the certificate must clearly show that this insurance covers sailing with iceboats including race events and training races.
  3. the certificate must show, that the insurance covers the region of Europe including Baltic Sea and Northern Sea. If you have an insurance “worldwide” these regions are covered of course and it’s ok.
  4. the certificate must clearly show, that it is valid at least for the time of the event.


Due to I got more and more normal word.doc as confirmation of cover, I have to state out that I can’t accept those.

Please understand that I need an official paper with signatures from your insurance company. I do not want to assume that anybody is cheating, but I have to check all insurances with the same rules.

Please be aware that I will check all insurances with the same accuracy.

*.dot files from a MAC I can’t open.

Please send *.pdf files or *.jpeg (jpg) files.

Please send your confirmation in high resolution !!!!



Insurances sent until January, 06th 2016; 24:00 (CET) will be assigned for a regular entry for WC/EC 2016.

If you send your confirmation at that very late stage, be aware that – if the confirmation is NOT OK – I will not assign any ID just because you are late. That’s not fair to all other sailors who sent their confirmations in time.

Then you will not be able to make a regular entry and you have to make a late entry.



As in the past years we offer for those sailors who really can not show a valid proof of insurance the SINGLE EVENT INSURANCE. As usual the fee for that is 50,– € and has to be paid at regatta check-in in cash.

To avoid any misunderstanding I have to inform that the so called “Single Event Insurance” is only for sailors from countries where we KNOW that they do not have any chance to get a proper insurance or an insurance for a tolerable amount.
First of all the goal is, that every sailor should have an insurance for the whole season. Not only at WC and EC. Second we try to have a spread of the risk. So the idea of the “Single Event Insurance” is only to make it every sailor possible to take part at WC (when held in Europe) and EC – not to make it easy for everyone to get an insurance. Please accept that not everybody who is asking for, will get a “Single Event Insurance”.



Please send the confirmation of cover of your insurances via e-mail at insurancemgr(at)idniyra.eu (please use as subject: insurance WC 2016) (replace (at) with @ !! ) or send via snail mail to:

Niklas Müller-Hartburg

Eduard Klein Gasse 31

1130 Wien




I do not answer all mails and send your ID personal back to you.

You can find your insurance ID here: http://idniyra.eu/?page_id=55

I will start assigning Insurance-IDs at the beginning of December.

It is possible that it takes one or two days until I assign the Insurance-ID, but I will try to do that faster after registration is open (01.12.2015; 12:00 CET)

If you do not find any ID or did not get any answer – please make sure I received your confirmation of cover.

It’s your own and sole responsibility.




To have an Insurance-ID only allows you to enter at the Online-Registration. You are not obliged to do so.

Having an Insurance-ID does not mean that you are registered for the regatta !!!

More and more organizers from other regattas accept the Insurance ID as confirmation for having an insurance (if the date fits to the respective regatta).


thanks a lot and Think Ice

EIA statement on appeal of Fredrik Lönegren S-8

This appeal was filed by Fredrik Lönegren. S-8, against the jury decision in his protest against Lukasz Zakrzewski, P-155 at the European championships 2015, race 5 gold fleet.
Some minor procedural mistakes were made in convening this protest, which we will address in a separate note to the IDNIYRA-Europe Board, but these were not relevant to the outcome of this protest. In this protest, S-8 alleged that P-155, coming into the top mark on port tack, sailed between the mark and the darling mark before making his final tack and rounding the first top mark.

Important Information Regarding the European Championship A-Fleet Final Standings


the weather at this year’s European Championship made things difficult for everyone involved. Tough decisions had to be made quickly which affected everyone. There was a lot of pressure put on the PRO and the Commodore to change the results of the regatta. Weeks after the event there had been time to review our decisions and correct some of our mistakes. It is important to set the precedent for proper procedures so that the same mistakes are not made in the future.  Read the rest of this entry »

EIA Statement on Appeal in the Case of Race 5 (A) – EC 2015

Dear Iceboaters,
EIA can not solve the disputes around Race5(A)-EC 2015. The rule we have to apply is “Lit. 7 (EIA), Organisation of IDNIYRA Europe in the Yearbook 2015″. This rule only allows appeals against Protest Hearing Decisions. There is no other rule on this. At EC 2015 no protest in this R5 case was filed, consequently no appeal against can be made. Therefore the appeal of Jörg Bohn, Commodore of IDNIYRA-Europe is inadmissible. Jörg has got an official writing with this information. The third EIA member (Stan Macur) did not participate in this case. He declared himself as prejudiced, because he is a member of the PRC.

March 26th 2015, EIA

The rule referred to is Lit. 7 (EIA), Organisation of IDNIYRA Europe in the Yearbook 2015 (Print Version) but in the Online Version http://idniyra.eu/?page_id=522 it is Lit. 6.
