Booking system
The booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in 
agreed priority order before the owners’ annual meeting, where 
the bookings for the next year are confirmed.

Each owner has a priority for that year, and moves up a couple of 
places each year: after a year at the top of the list, the owner then 
starts at the bottom, and after six years the cycle begins again. 
Each owner can choose two weeks (separately or as a fortnight) 
in the ‘high season’ (April to October inclusive), and one week in 
the remainder of the year. By this route, thirty-six weeks are 
firmly booked before the year begins.

Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining fourteen 
weeks are booked with priority in reverse order to the original chart, 
so having last choice originally does have its compensations.
Priority for school holidaysSchool holiday shares are possible on this boat
