A short presentation the new about the communication tools of the IEMA
The IEMA is working hard towards a strong online presence with a clear strategy to show how much we are alive and thriving as a class.
Once all in place they will all work together to improve our online presence, and tell the story of the class as a whole, hopefully including all the separate fleets and yachts. IEMA - 8mR.org
This is the home of the international eight metre association.
here you find:
1. News updates
2. The People of the IEMA
3. The Rules of the class
the people, the rules, trophies and history of the class including news updates. straightforward and clean cut.
we will introduce further layers on this website where you can find every thing about the eights, the races and the historic actions..
8mr.org has become a strong tree
and now we are working to add the lights to the (Christmas) tree...
These are the official current social media channels of the international eight metre association.
1. Facebook Page
2. Facebook Group
3. Instagram account
The last couple of years the Facebook group attracted a lot of attention and we will work to keep this active and let it grow even more.
The instagram account was up to now not active but that's about to change
And in an ever evolving world, not only our yachts evolve over the years. Also the way we look for information changes. Therefore we are always actively looking for the best platforms to spread the information of IEMA and to engage owners, crew and enthusiasts.
During lockdown Michiel Insinger worked many hours on a project called 8mrworldcup.com here he made 177 profiles of 8mR yachts and collected over 22 years of race results. all this data will now be incorporated into the IEMA website.
We are working very hard behind de scenes to integrate all the data on a logical and technical efficient way into the New IEMA website.
in the future every thing about the World Cup regattas will be found here
1. the next regatta with all the details to get organised
2. Info in the future events
3. Results and hopefully a report of all the past events
for now we added a extra logo but that is just to make it clear
This will be the online archive many of us have been waiting for, for very long
here we can try to collect all the basic profiles of all the 8mrs ever built.
here we can showcase all the local races.
Show historic results of local races. this also will be the place for historic stories of yards, restorations and more ...
by keeping this channel close to us we build the class as a whole and not only for paying members but as a class for all the eights racing or stored for the next custodian.
Here you will find the profiles of all the eight metre yachts active in the IEMA class
The logo is just to show its a separate part of the IEMA website
Here we have all the active members with their Yachts presented in full with photo galleries, links to instagram feeds, videos and more details like racing results in detail per yacht with cross references.
And a login section where you can find
racing certificates, a discusion forum about technical stuf with the technical committee. a knowledge base and things alike. about Restoring and Racing an Eight
here we can assist in buying, restoring, running and selling yachts of this magnificent class.
