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 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 holidaysNo such scheme on this boat
