Booking System A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in agreed priority order before the owners' annual meeting (usually held in October), where the bookings for the next year are confirmed.
Each owner has a priority for that year, and moves up 1 place one year, 3 places the following year. Each owner can choose two weeks (preferably as a fortnight) in the 'high season' (April to September inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year, 'low season'.
By this route, thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year begins. Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining weeks are booked with priority in reverse order to the current chart, so having last choice originally, does have its compensations. The booking chart for these additional weeks is circulated after the owners' annual meeting.
Priority for school holidays None

Owners agree that smoking is not allowed within the boat, but is allowed on deck
We bought in to Scherzo in 2016 to give an insight as to whether or not to purchase our own boat, ill health has now decided that for us
It is a ‘homely’ boat having been well cared for
To appreciate this statement you need to view Scherzo. However the details on websites
will give you a good flavour
The website was updated in 2017 and the details have not materially changed since, except for the appointment of a new boat manager (now Roy Copsey) and the move to the Heritage marina on the Macclesfield canal.
