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.
For those who've expressed interest in a reminder session or basic introduction on the use of the club rescue boats, committee boat, radio equipment and race officer results programmes. It is proposed to hold these on Saturday the 23rd of June at 10am, after the racing, in the Club. I look forward to seeing you all there.

Due to popular demand, we are holding Cadet Week, the week before Findhorn Week from the 9th/13th of July. If you plan to attend Cadet Week, please contact Jo Scott so she’s aware how many cadets she’ll have to deal with. If you are free to assist with the week, please let Jo know.
Regatta Weekend, including RS200 and RS400 Travellers, will take place on the 14th/15th July with Findhorn Week from the 16th/20th of July. The Notices of Race, Sailing Instructions and Entry Form for the open events are available on this website. As usual, I am looking for assistance both ashore and afloat, as are the Rescue crew. If you are available and willing to help, please contact me.
For those who are interested in the trip to the Old Bar, this will take place on the 7th/8th July. Again, it would be handy to have a rough idea how many are planning to attend this.
If you want more information about the summer sailing events, please feel free to contact myself or Jo Scott. See you all in July!
Iona Cornish, RFYC - Sailing Secretary
Unwanted boats in the dinghy parks makes mess and uses-up space. Equally, the RFYC Council has to spend time finding owners and sorting-out what to do. Recently, the council has made considerable in-roads in reducing the problem, and members can very easily help by:
Re-locking the gates on ENTRY as well as EXIT, particularly to the north dinghy park
Jumbling the combination of numbers
If asked for the gate code, only giving out the number if you are certain the person asking is a current member of the club
Referring anyone else who asks for access to a dinghy park to the Hon Sec or the bar staff
If you can't remember the number then please contact the Hon Sec or the bar staff.
Very many thanks for your cooperation, Julia Parker (Hon Sec)
