Almost 50 years ago, in 1973, DN sailors from around the world gathered for the first IDNIYRA World Championship at Gull Lake, in Michigan U.S.A.

During the next two seasons, IDNIYRA North America and IDNIYRA Europe will each take the opportunity to honor 50 years of international competition. In January 2023, DN North America will kick off the celebration by commemorating the 50th anniversary of the first World Championships. DN Europe will continue the 50th-anniversary theme when it hosts the actual 50th running of the World Championship in 2024.

Join the celebration by attending the IDNIYRA World Championship which is scheduled for January 21-28, 2023, in the Western Region of North America. Regatta details will be posted at idniyra.org
