The hunt for regatta ice has started in Europe for the 2020 IDNIYRA World and European Championships, scheduled for February 8 – 15. After a one week break from the 2020 NAs held in the “Middle of Nowhere” Fort Peck, MT, North American competitors will begin their migration east. I’ll be tagging along and also attending the 2020 Junior Worlds from February 16 – 21. Watch for updates on this website and the IDNIYRA Europe website.
The map above is embedded on the Championship History page of this website. Interesting to note that the distance between the farthest west we’ve gone (Fort Peck, Montana) and the farthest east (St. Petersburg, Russia) is 4500 miles! That trip to Montana added some miles to our regatta map.
We are very excited that Glasglow Montana photographer and drone pilot extraordinaire, Sean Heavey, will be joining us for the Gold Cup. DNs are not only fast and fun to sail, they are also a vehicle for creativity, as Sean and many other photographers have discovered.
