The MLA, whose members include sea schools and charter companies has launched a new website

The Marine Leisure Association has launched a new website for boaters looking to book a charter holiday or take sail training. The trade association, which was formed last year, is the amalgamation of the Association of Fully Bonded Sailing Companies (ABSC), National Federation of Sea Schools (NFSS) and Yacht Charter Association (YCA).

Recognised by the Government, the MCA and RYA as a National Body, the purpose of the Marine Leisure Association is to help boaters get afloat safely by protecting them with a Code of Conduct which all its members must adhere to.
