The benefits of joining are many. Perhaps the most important is immediate access to a wealth of knowledge, experience and help concerning every model of Leisure yacht.

Much of the knowledge is contained in individual Technical Reference Library articles, a growing range of Owners Manuals and in the "Saltings" magazine archive which covers the last 20 years,

The Association digital magazine, 'Saltings', is published three times a year and contains both sailing and technical articles written by the membership, as well as news and other items of interest.  Click here for a sample copy of Saltings in PDF format.

More Immediate advice and help is available to members on the very active Discussion Forum.  

The Leisure Association is run wholly by volunteers.  Funds such as membership fees, are used solely to administer, sustain and improve the experience of LOA members.
