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

Booking is on a ladder system with owners moving up a place each year.

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.

Time is blocked out by agreement 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.

Additional weeks can then be booked where weeks remain free; this
may attract additional contributions to the sinking fund.
Priority for school holidaysThree shares have priority options and pay an additional amount 
to the sinking fund for this. They choose weeks before the rest 
of the owners in a rotating order.

General comments by vendor

Odyssey is a very comfortable and well appointed craft - a real home from home.

The amount of space and sleeping arrangements means you can have a large crew without falling over each other.

She is well looked after with regular servicing and maintenance and is a real beauty.
