The last two letters in the IDNIYRA stands for racing association.

You must be a member (dues paid before the annual regatta) to race in an IDNIYRA regatta. Click here to become a member.

The annual regattas include a Gold Cup (World Championship) and a European and North American Championship. The host and location of the Gold Cup is alternated between the North American and the European organizations. For complete information, please see the IDNIYRA By Laws.

We race under the IDNIYRA By Laws and the National Iceboat Authority Racing Rules.


The DN is most popular iceboat in the world. Whether you are a racer or cruiser, your $25 membership in the IDNIYRA helps to promote the art and skill of DN ice yacht construction and the sport of ice yachting on all the hard waters of the world.
