Our website is undergoing a major revamp. Please bear with us as things get moved from old to new…

Welcome to the The Royal Findhorn Yacht Club. We are located in Findhorn, on the coast of the Moray Firth in Scotland, on a site overlooking the sheltered inshore waters of Findhorn Bay. The club house has a fantastic view over Findhorn Bay and the Moray Firth, with an outstanding sailing area and an enviable heritage.

RFYC offers organised and supervised racing for dinghies and occasional cruiser activities from April though to October with additional mid-week events during the holiday season. Training and coaching, by experienced race coaches and sailors is provided from time to time.

Cafe facilities are available during the day and bar facilities are available in the evenings at weekends. Games and activity areas for children are available at all times, with social programme of both formal and informal events throughout the year. The high-spot of the year is Cadet Week and the Regatta Weekend which runs into Findhorn Week. Seven days of dinghy racing with parties every evening make an excellent start to the holiday season.

Dates for Open Events in 2019

Dates for 2019 Open Events at RFYC are as follows:

  • Findhorn Regatta will now be held on Sat 1st June / Sun 2nd June
  • Cadet Week will still be on Mon 8th July / Fri 12th July
  • Findhorn Week will now be on Sun 14th July / Thu 18th July
  • National 18s Championships will be on Sun 28th July / Fri 2nd August

Due to the way the tides fall and the anticipated load on support personnel with the number of planned open events, we have decided that we are going to try splitting Regatta Weekend and Findhorn Week next year. We hope this will not affect those who have already booked accommodation for Findhorn Week as those dates are not really changing. We would be grateful if you would pass this message on to your contacts and make sure that the date change is publicised at your sailing club.
