The Royal Findhorn Yacht Club is 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.

Support with public relations, equipment checking, maintaining portakabins, fundraising and crew administration are a few of the things you may be able to get involved with.
Membership renewal letters have been sent out. Where possible, I've emailed them, so please check your spam box if you haven't received them. Those without emails will receive your letters by post.

As you may remember the Commodore, Michael Barron, indicated at the Special General Meeting held last summer that there is no quick or easy solution to how we develop a feasible strategy for the club that provides members, young and older with a club that is fit for purpose for the future.
This spring Michael will reconvene the future strategy group. The remit of the group is to generate ideas for the future of the building and/or club, based on what we now know and work up options with more detail. The council would like the next report to be ready for discussion at the 2018 AGM.
