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||
A maximum of two owners may elect to take a share with school holiday preference.

General Comments by vendor
Longsdon was built in 2009 and has been very well maintained since new with several of the shareholders being original shareholders. The syndicate is self managed and is very efficiently run to keep cost low but standards very high but at the same time remains a very friendly syndicate with everyone willing to help out.
This very friendly and
extremely competent syndicate self manages the boat with a
policy to maintain her as close as possible to her original
state with a friendly management system and a mooring policy
democratically determined by all the shareholders.
Longsdon has been a great boat for us and we have enjoyed every week out on her but sadly recent commitments have made it difficult for us to make proper use of her and hence our sad decision to sell our share.
