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 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.
