About the Leader Class Owners' Association (L.C.O.A.)

 

The L.C.O.A. exists to encourage new and existing sailors to become active in the use of the Leader dinghy.  The Association also promotes the interest of the class and helps to maintain contact between members.

 

The Association is run by an annually elected committee of Leader owners to represent the racing, cruising and pottering fraternity.  One of the main of the Association since it's inception, is the friendliness between owners.

 

The L.C.O.A. arranges a series of open meetings during the season, together with the national championships, which are open to all Leader owners.

 

In many parts of the country, a trial demonstration can be arranged for prospective Leader owners by an existing member of the class.  This will enable prospective owners to experience the pleasure of owning and sailing a Leader.

 

LCOA Membership

 

Membership includes regular updates via email, eligibility for events in the Leader sailing calendar and support from other LCOA members.  Cost of membership is just £10 per year to become a full member and £5 per year for an associate member (e.g. non-Leader owner).
