DN World & EU Championship: Day 1 AM Report

Training Day, Saturday, February 3, 2024. Photo: Gilles Morelle

Good morning from Parnu, Estonia, home of the 2024 DN World & European Championship and Junior World Championships. Just back from breakfast buffet where competitors were starting their day. We’ll soon be heading to the launch site, about 11 km from the hotel, for opening ceremonies followed by a skipper’s meeting and then racing. North Americans here include Chris Berger, Bob Cummins, John Curtis, David Frost, Daniel Hearn, Jacek Marzenski, and Ron Sherry. I’ll try for some Facebook live today on the IDNIYRA North American Facebook page.

Via 2023 DN Worlds & North American Event Photographer Cathy Firmbach:

Thanks for your patience! My online store is now open with a gallery for the 2023 DN World Championship. The first set of images are uploaded and they will continue to be uploaded over the next few days. The North American Championship images will follow in a new gallery.

Each image has the sail number(s) as a keyword (ie, us46 ) to make searching for your boat easy. You will find the search bar in the top right corner.
THANKS very much for your support! Without it, I would not be able to continue to be out there with you.
Hope to see you on the ice soon! See the gallery here.




Greetings From the Western Region,
Following is a round up of regatta information. Have a question? Get in touch with us: secretary.idniyra@gmail.com


As we’ve done in the past three years, we will use a texting program to communicate with competitors. No need to download an app, messages from the Race Committee will come right to your phone. After each race, when the scoring team completes the line-up sheets, they will send a photo by text for your convenience. (Of course, this depends on cell phone coverage, but we have yet to encounter a problem.) If you don’t carry a phone on the ice, we will post the line-up sheets as usual. Unfortunately, our texting software doesn’t handle international numbers, but no worries, we have you covered with WhatsApp.
We’ve set up a WhatsApp Group to communicate with our international competitors. If you’d like to join, email or text Deb, and she’ll send you the link to join.

Harken is the official media sponsor of the 2023 World Championship. Harken marketing communications team members, including Hannah Noll, will join us on the ice to produce daily video reports and social media content. Hannah and the Harken team will be looking to interview competitors, so here’s your chance to share your passion for DN sailing with a global audience.
Follow Harken on Instagram and Facebook for storytelling throughout the event.
