8mr.org has become the strong base from were we build out our strategy
1. Facebook Page & Group
2. Instagram account
3. YouTube channel
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.
We have started with The instagram account as of February 2023. and the YouTube channel is in the making
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.
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
