The Association has very little information about the Leisure 26.
Built from the same moulds and virtually identical to the well known Oyster 26. The main difference between the Leisure and the Oyster is the rig, which was 7/8 on the Oyster, but is 3/4 on the Leisure.
We know that very few were built, possibly only one or two. If you have further information about this yacht, please contact the Association Administrator

For cruising boats, The RYA has updated the Portsmouth Yardstick scheme with the National Handicap for Cruisers (NHC). More up to date information may be obtainable from the RYA NHC site and the Byron web site.
The only yardstick information we have is the Recorded Number (RN) as follows.
