IFDCO app available now! 0 (0)

Dear FD sailor,

today we start a new way of communication ūüôā

Our own IFDCO app is available now!

Please have a look in your app-store and look for ‚ÄěIFDCO‚Äú or use the QR code below.

This new app allows us a world-wide-communication between all FD sailors.

The following features are available in the first step:
1) a direct link to all our events
2) a chat with predefined channels for each country, World Championships, FD sailors worldwide. Please add your preferred channels to your own list. You can also create private groups or get in contact with people who are already registered. All this absolutely data protection compliant;
3) a members area where you can publish your sailing-pictures and where we can have official surveys – this area is just for IFDCO members. Please login with your name and email etc. and select the role ‚Äěmember‚Äú. You will receive a notification when your IFDCO membership is confirmed. If you are not a member yet you can get in touch with the IFDCO for a new membership.
4) you can see all the news from our website directly in the app – you will also receive a push-notification when there is a new post on the website
5) find all links to our social media channels within the app
6) a list of all official contacts: General Committee and National Secretaries – the details of each persons will be added as soon as we have the approval of the person
7) a list of all necessary documents for FD-sailing (e.g. Byelaws, Classrules) – this list will also be enhanced soon
8) available Bulletins for direct access – the old versions will also be added
9) a worldwide Pin Board to sell & find boats, equipment, sailors for a regatta etc. Feel free to publish your needs or availability.
10) a map with our national organisations and our sailing areas (this list will be enhanced)

This app is created with a partner in Germany so please let me know if there may be some german words somewhere ūüėČ

If you want to be a partner for the IFDCO and get your business-profile in the partner module please get in touch with me.

This app is the first step in the direction of a world-wide communication. We will make sure that we enhance it step by step and that more usefull features will be implemented.

I’m looking forward to receive your feedback and wish you all the best now in discovering our new IFDCO app.

All the best for you.

Worlds Standpoint 4.8 (4)

To all FD sailors:
STANDPOINT
In regard to the upcoming Worlds and the permanent changing situation around Covid the IFDCO has the following standpoint:
As up to this moment the Championship will take place. If the situation in Spain changes in the way that the Championship is no longer possible we will inform you on the IFDCO-website as soon as possible.
Today’s situation (21-7-2021) is that ¬†Spain is coloured red but allows people to travel¬†into the country. To do so several requiremenents do exist; so
+  You need to show proof of full vaccination at least received 14 days before you tavel to Spain
+  You have proof on paper that you have a full recovery from Covid-19; this statement must be at least 11 days old but not older than 180 days
+  You must have a negative PCR test not older than 72 hours
+  You have a negative antigene-test not older than 48 hours
+ ¬†In these cases you don’t have to go into quarantine
+  ChiIdren under the age of 12 can travel freely into Spain without any of the above mentioned documents
At the moment different countries have different status for Covid-19. For example Germany and Italy are green and the Netherlands are red.
So please check out the situation in your own country and of course also the status for your return.
We understand that some of you have difficulties with the decision weather they should go to the Worlds or not. There is a lot involved also financially.
As IFDCO we of course hope that we will all be sailing in Altea and have a great time! But of course we do not have control over this situation. If very shortly before the event travelling to Spain is not longer allowed this would be
awful.
So everybody has to take their decision for themselves and take their own responsibility in this.
We hope that we can all be there and have a great Championship!!
Regards
Peter van Koppen
President IFDCO

  • Arrival in Altea 31st august
  • Costs for transport all in Moerdijk-Altea-Moerdijk 1.100,- per FD at 6 FD‚Äôs per cntr
