Booking systemThe booking system, run by the Secretary, allows the owner 
of each share to book in advance up to 4 weeks use of the boat 
each year. 

Two weeks in the "high season" (April to September, inclusive) 
and two weeks in the "low season" (remaining weeks). 

At the beginning of July each year the Secretary will send out 
the Booking Chart to owners, in priority order, inviting them 
to choose their weeks for the following year. 

The Booking Priority System is designed such that over a six year 
period an owner would move from the bottom of the list to the top. 
Each year they would move down 3 positions until they reach the bottom. 

The following year they would return to the top of the list. 
When the annual booking process has been completed owners can 
buy additional weeks that may be vacant.

The change over day is Wednesday. 
Priority for school holidaysNo

General comments by vendor

Henrietta is moving to The Netherlands for repainting. The cost for which are already budgeted into the accounts

Henrietta is currently based at Port Royal in Auxonne. 

However, she is sheduled to be repainted in Spring 2025 at Multiships Harlingen. 

This gives a fantastic opportunity for Henrietta to travel North through France, Belgium and Holland this year and to spend some time in The Netherlands in 2025. 

What happens after that is to be decided by the group. Winter 2024/25 will be spent in Maastricht which is a beautiful city on the Dutch, Belgium and German borders.
