Call for articles for the LOA magazine – May 2021

Material request for the Summer edition of the Leisure Owners Association magazine.

Have you got a story to tell or some information from your area? We’d love to hear from you.

Please get your Sou’wester thinking cap on and explore this very unusual year for the seeds of an article for the magazine. Let members know what has happened to you or your boat this season; perhaps, like me, you’ve found your boat to be the ideal solution to lockdown. That is, when you could eventually get aboard!

I’ve seen reports of sailors who were already at sea or set off as lockdown started – perhaps there is a Leisure Owner amongst you with such a tale to tell. For example, the situation has led you to reflect on life at sea or lake or loch or river. Maybe you finally found time to do that maintenance that’s been crying out for attention. Possibly you’ve found a really interesting or useful online video that others could benefit from.

Call for articles – Deadline

Note: we haven’t set a deadline for submissions, however please don’t leave it too close to the end of March/start of April for inclusion.

Send your articles, images and ideas to the

I look forward to hearing from you and a fair wind to all,
