Filey Sailing Club is situated to the north of Filey town nestling on the cliffs at the edge of The North Sea. Filey Bay is protected by a large natural outcrop of land called The Brigg which serves as a barrier to the heavy seas and swells from the North to almost Westerley winds. The Club hosts regular racing for sailing dinghies of all classes. It also has a thriving social calendar for sailiors and non-sailors alike. For novices or those with a casual interest in dinghy sailing the club is a Royal Yachting Association recognised traing centre where courses can be taken to learn the various different facets of water borne activities. During July each year the club hosts its annual Regatta which sees up to 150 boats from all over the country competing in a series of races over two days. This is a spectacular sight for sailors an land lubbers alike and sees the town of Filey humming with excitement.
