EVENT ENTRY NOW CLOSED
We are now running a waiting list for Junior Fortnight 2021 as it is at capacity.
Duty Man is now live for parents of competitors to volunteer for their duties, either on or off the water. Parents should have been contacted by the ISC office with a link requiring them to do two half day duties per child per event. It would be very helpful if you can complete this as soon as possible.
Qualifying - please can we remind all competitors that, to qualify for the event, they will be required to have completed at least 4 club races or 4 ISC training days as helm or crew (as appropriate to your entry) during the 2021 season prior to the weekend of 24/25 July. An equivalent measure will apply to non-members where racing at their home club will qualify. We would like all competitors to be race ready.
Parent Social Tickets - we ask parents of competitors who have not yet booked their discounted social tickets to do so. These are limited and we would not want anyone to miss out. https://www.itchenorsc.co.uk/b...
Parent Daytime Activities and Evening Racing - we ask parents of competitors who have not yet completed this to do so. It will help the JF Committee and Club with planning. https://www.itchenorsc.co.uk/b...
Competitor Tee Shirts please look out for an email from email@example.com asking for your competitors T shirt size with a guide included. We would appreciate your return email by Tuesday 15th June
Competitor Hoodies and "Merch" - Hoodies, bucket hats and scrunchie also available to purchase. Please sign up to the new JF 21 Notices WhatsApp group and details how to order will be communicated there this weekend
JF 21 Notices WhatsApp - please can we ask all competitors and their parents to join the new JF 21 Notices WhatsApp group. This is a JF Committee admin only WhatsApp group and we will be starting to use it to communicate with you in the next few weeks.
The JF Committee are super-excited about the changes we are introducing to JF 2021 using survey responses from 2019/2020 parents and competitors. We have tried to introduce as many of your fantastic ideas as possible. So please be ready for a few changes. We really hope you will like the new format.
The overall concept is to focus the whole event, including the social programme, back to our club and for parents and guardians to enjoy a reduced duty burden and a range of fun activities as well. The JF Committee and ISC have worked hard to ensure that all aspects of the event from the entry fee to food and drink are great value. We hope families refuel and party more at the club in a fun atmosphere!
We also believe that, in the context of ISC rules for the supervision and safety of your children, improving our offer to parents and guardians at the club should reduce the burden for the organisers. So please can we remind you that JF is not a creche or holiday camp and we all share responsibility for our own and each others children. Children should not be left at ISC to be supervised by club staff or the JF Committee.
There are also some changes to the sailing format this year:
Every class (Mirrors, Toppers, Feva XL, Laser Radial/ Aero 5 and 420s) will have a separate week one and week two series, each with 5 days of racing as we are dropping the Junior Regatta. Trophies will mostly be awarded for overall results for the whole fortnight as before but there will also be prizes for individual weeks.
We will be running two Mirror events (Mirrors spinnaker and Mirrors non-spinnaker) each morning. The Mirror fleets will have an all ages Fun Week in the first week enabling young sailors to sail with an older sibling or parent if they wish. Older competitors will race in the afternoons.
