General comments by vendor

An AGM is held once a year in Oct/Nov. This is the main forum for discussions and decisions around mooring location, essential repairs and replacements and anything else that the members feel needs to be discussed. Attendance is encouraged as it allows everyone to meet new members and exchange ideas. It is a valued social event and as such a meal and drinks are paid for by the syndicate funds.

We have owned our shares in Orchid since 2009 and have thoroughly enjoyed the boat and the syndicate.

Orchid has had a new/reconditioned engine in 2012 and a repaint in 2015.
