Open Events RNYC hosts a number of open events and activities during the year: Blyth Regatta Each year in early September, RNYC welcomes visitors to take part in it’s own regatta. Enjoy racing and the all-important socialising at the big weekend of the year. Winter Series Racing Keep sailing through the winter at our winter series! Fortnightly short races from November to March keep your sailing skills fresh, and a warm welcome in the bar helps ease any effects of the weather. View the details of the 2017-18 Winter Series. East Coast Sailing Week East Coast Week is held at RNYC every third year (being held on the Forth and the Tay on other years) and attracts a large fleet from the North East of England and the East Coast of Scotland, plus visitors from further afield. In 2014 East Coast Week was held at Blyth. Visit the ECSW 2014 web pages First Wednesday Talk Series The club’s regular series of talks by guest speakers is open to members and non-members alike.
