Junior Fortnight 2022 will run from Monday 25th July to Friday 5th August with registration on Sunday 24th July 2022.


We were delighted with the feedback we received about many of the new initiatives we tried out in 2021 so, for those who participated, JF 2022 will be very similar to last year but even better!

Our main issue in 2021 was that JF was over-subscribed. We are therefore introducing a few important changes to ensure that we run a fun event which is safe and comfortable for everyone. In short, entry qualification requirements will need to be met by participants before their entry to race in Junior Fortnight is accepted. We tried (unsuccessfully due to Covid) to introduce entry qualification in 2021 but it is happening this year, hence our announcing it at JF 2021 prizegiving and various updates through the JF web page, JF Notice WhatsApp and through class captains.

With the ISC racing season starting in late March and to assist with your planning for JF 2022, we want to make sure all potential competitors and their families can now focus on qualifying for JF and are aware of the following:-


The Event

  • JF and Family Fun Week (FFW) 2022 will ideally be about 10% smaller than 2019 and 2021 and be restricted to competitors aged 8-19 (age at 1 September 2021)
  • We may need to introduce limits on the number of boats competing in each sailing event to assist with smooth race management and rescue cover
  • A provisional race programme enables competitors to compete in two events if they wish (i.e. one in the morning and another in the afternoon)
  • We will race Mirrors non-spinnaker, Mirrors spinnaker, Toppers am and Toppers pm, Feva XLs, 420s and Laser Radials/ Aero 5s. NEW for 2002, the Topper pm event will provide a start for 4.2m rigs and, subject to entry levels, will be timed to allow participants to compete in Mirrors spinnaker in the morning as well
  • The JF entry fee will include a fortnight wristband for evening meals, social programme and registration bag. With the exception of FFW, there will be no one week entry or discount for one week this year.
  • FFW will be the only one week event in the first week of JF. The child competitor entry price for FFW will include a one week wristband for evening meals, social programme and registration bag
  • FFW is for non-spinnaker Mirror silver fleet only. It allows parents and older siblings to crew a younger competitor (aged 8 or over at 1 September 2021). It will be possible to enter just FFW without doing the remainder of JF
  • Event entry for JF and FFW will be open to Full and Taster ISC members only from 3 May to 20 June 2022. An ISC helm will be allowed to enter with a crew who is not an ISC member (but a member of an RYA affiliated sailing club)
  • Social package wristbands, including evening meals for parents/ guardians and younger siblings of ISC members (Pink group only under 8 years of age), will be released for sale on 3 May 2022
  • If there is additional space, event entry may be opened to members of Chichester Harbour Federation and reciprocal clubs during June 2022 with an additional temporary membership fee for entrants and their parents/ guardians. Subject to availability, social package wristbands will also be released for sale to temporary member parents/ guardians as well
  • Event entry will close when JF is full
  • CANCELLATION POLICY. Only enter if you are fully committed to Junior Fortnight. Any cancellations from 24 June 2022 onwards will incur a 20% administration fee before the balance is returned. The administration fee will rise to 40% on 1 July, 60% on 8 July, 80% on 15 July and 100% on 22 July 2022.
  • We will be running a full social programme for all competitors and parents, similar to 2021 which will be after racing for all. - See our Provision Social Programme: JF 2022 provisional Social Summary v3.pdf
  • We will continue to require parents/ guardians to make themselves available for duties as a condition of entry. Like JF 2021, we expect this to be two half day duties per child per event but will be dependent on numbers - please see Job Descriptions for Duties document below.
  • We will be running parent evening racing in the second week of JF and other activities for parents again during JF 2022

 

Entry Qualification

  • To qualify to race in JF 2022, helms and crews will both be required to declare that they have completed a minimum 4 racing days as helm or crew in the JF class(es) of boat for which they are entering and state these details when they enter. For the avoidance of doubt, the qualification days are in the period since 1 September 2021 and if a competitor plans to race in two JF events we do not require a minimum of 8 racing days. 
  • Entrants sailing a new class of boat for the first time in 2022 may count 2 completed ISC organised training days as racing days at the time of entry but we still expect all entrants to fulfil a commitment to sail a minimum of 4 racing days in addition before Junior Fortnight
  • Entrants may submit their entry without yet having completed the minimum 4 racing days. All entrants will be placed on a waiting list until they have met this requirement. Qualification days will be checked before entry is accepted and payment is taken.
