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.
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)

Notice from the Secretary of Findhorn Fairway Committee;
Many of you will be aware that the Landfall Buoy has not been placed for a couple of years. The committee has now progressed with the authorities to "permanently disestablish" the mark; in effect removing it from charts etc.
This note is to let you know this has happened and that there will be no Landfall Buoy placed in the foreseeable future. (Please don't confuse the Landfall Buoy with the Bar Buoy (Red) at the gut of the entrance to the channel by the barrier sandbanks, this will placed as usual)
