Filey Sailing Club is situated to the North of the town of Filey. The bay is formed by a natural outcrop of land called the brig, which protects the bay from heavy seas from the north, whilst on the south side, the long stretch of cliffs heading toward Flamborough Head prevents heavy seas rolling in from the south.
On Sundays during the sailing season (April to October inclusive), the club safety boat(s) are on the water to provide assistance for sailors in the bay.
The Officer of the Day, who is stationed on the Committee boat and is in touch with the clubhouse and safety crew via VHF radio, supervises safety cover.
All full and family members have to do two duties each season. These may be on Sundays to help with club racing or on other days when we are hosting open events or training courses.
The Club is an RYA recognised training establishment for dinghy sailing, windsurfing and power boating. When a suitable level of proficiency is attained, full members who do not own their own boats may be able to borrow the club boats or boards if they are not being used for training.
With the aid of a grant from the Filey Leader project and a Millennium fund grant, the club added six new Topper dinghies to the training fleet and a Pico. Two Omega dinghies enable training to take place in modern up to date performance dinghies.
There is a full programme of racing on Sundays during the season with racing available for all dinghy classes.
For members not interested in racing there is a programme of fun events, which are often held on Saturdays.
