The rota is managed by the syndicate's Booking Secretary, to give boaters 1 week in Spring, 2 weeks in Summer, and a further week in Autumn/Winter. The weeks "slip back" by a two places each cruising year, so that shareholders experience the waterways in all seasons. Plenty of opportunity for swapping weeks and extended cruising by arrangement.
AGM held yearly (normally late January) when fees and any changes for coming year are agreed.

General Comments by vendor
Members are willing to swop weeks to assist each other with personnel circumstances and once rota is published members are free to swap weeks or sell weeks to other members at a fixed price (2017=£189). This is set at three times the current monthly maintenance payment, so in theory if you are unable to use your weeks one year and sell them to other members it would cover your maintenance payments for that year.
The four maintenance weeks spread throughout the year are used by the engineer (One of the members, although any other members may help if they like) to do any improvements that are needed/ requested. Further maintenance/repairs carried out by Anglo Welsh also utilising these weeks who also look after the cleaning at turnaround.
As you can see Madge is maintained to a high standard with high spec fittings to afford all members a pleasant luxurious time aboard. We are a very friendly group of members who meet yearly for a social get together, in addition to the AGM.
We have also in the past arranged changeover at different locations to enable visits to further reaches of the network.
Viewings can be arranged with members by arrangement.
