Allocation of weeks is by annual ballot.
The year is divided into four periods to cover
Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter seasons and
‘lots’ are drawn from each of the groupings every year
thus enabling everyone to have a selection of weeks
throughout the year.
Should one Syndicate member want time drawn by another
member it will be possible to exchange weeks or merely
offer them over if not required.
|Priority for school holidays||No such scheme on this boat.|
