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

General comments by vendor

The boat has been regularly very well maintained and we have very good group of shareholders who get on well together and muck in with minor maintenance work/painting touchup/week swapping etc. We had Longsdon from new and she has been a very comfortable and reliable boat

In 2021 this share will occupy position seven on the booking chart and in so rising to a place in the next few years where more choice of weeks will be available when it comes to choosing. 

We pay a monthly standing order of £99 which breaks down with some flexibility as follows:
Running costs £57
Winter works £30
Accumulating funds for significant unforeseen works/repainting/engine overhaul/ refurbishing etc £13
