A 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.
These extra bookings are confirmed on the first day of the month before
the month of the booking
|Priority for school holidays||Three designated "special" shares have priority booking of school |
holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of the costs than
"ordinary" shares thus reducing the other 9 shares contributions
