|Booking system||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 September inclusive), and one week in
the remainder of the year. By this route, thirty-three weeks are
firmly booked before the year begins.
Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining seventeen
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||Some shareholders have "School Holiday" priority.|

General comments by vendor
Honeystreet is moved every so often around the cut, the destination being decided by majority vote by the syndicate members. She is regularly maintained; her engine was replaced in 2013.
We have found her a lovely boat to use.
