Entries are invited for the Itchen Junior Regatta to be held on Saturday 29th September 2018 with racing due to start from 10:30am for the following events:
NOVICE and COMPETITIVE EVENTS
Boys & Girls - J12/13 1X 2X 4X+
Boys & Girls - J14 1X 2X 4X+
Boys & Girls - J15 1X 2X 4X+
Boys & Girls - J16 1X 2X 4X+
Boys & Girls - J16 4+ (Competitive Only)
The regatta is aimed at River Boats. Entries for Coastal boats will be accepted but may need to be combined into races with river boats unless there are enough entries (min 3 Coastal) to warrant a separate event.
Age categories will be held over from the 2017-18 season ending 31 Aug.
J12/J13 crews can be mixed.
Whilst we encourage rowers to enter multiple events, we would ask that clubs refrain from “rowing-up” two or more age groups to avoid program “hold-ups” where competitors end up in back-to-back events.
NOVICE and COMPETITIVE ROWERS (potential Junior Inter-Regional Regatta (JIRR) crews)
To encourage fun and competitive racing for young rowers of similar ability and experience, we ask you to be realistic and categorise your juniors as either “NOVICE” or “COMPETITIVE”, with Novice rowers being those that have never raced or raced only a couple of times.
Enter crews as: NOV (A), NOV (B), etc, or COMP (A), COMP (B), etc.
Looking ahead to JIRR next year – this is a good Wessex Region event to try out some Competitive crews.
All races will be straight races (no buoy turns) over the standard Itchen Imperial Regatta course of approx. 500m, finishing under the Itchen Bridge in front of the club.
The course is 3 lanes wide and if heats are run, the winner-stays-on in a knockout style competition until the event winner is found.
Entry Fee = £4 per seat, coxswains excluded.
