Welcome to Hickling Windsurfing Club

The premier windsurfing location on the Norfolk Broads, East Anglia, UK. A beautiful relatively safe location, close to the North Sea coast, great winds, beginner loan equipment, excellent facilities, and a warm welcome. 

The sport of Windsurfing is great for personal fitness, and sailing along under your own power is the ultimate thrill. We can arrange limited coaching to new members to help learning and to get the most from the club. We occasionally have training days and public ‘come and try’ days too.

If you are interested in joining then e-mail memberships@hicklingbroad.co.uk. There’s also further information on joining here.

20 May – Come and Try day

We do like our open days, and this year’s was up there with our best. Our visitors must have thought so too, as a staggering 77% of them joined, which is quite an improvement on the 5% from last year. That’s astonishing. A lot of hard work and a beer after. Well done to the 20+ volunteers who made this possible: Gareth, Wendy, John, Patricia, Philip, Keith, Roger, Glynis, Darren, Jeff, Simon, David, Steve, Chris, Darren, Sam, Wendy, Neil, David, Paul and Tone.

 

 

“We wish…

you a merry Xmas and a happy new year”

Winter exclusion zone – 1 Nov to 31 March 2018

Please remember to keep clear of the winter exclusion zones, marked by a line of white Buoys, and yellow hatching in the picture. This is to help minimise the disturbance to wintering birds. This goes back to when the Club was formed and agreed with the Broads Authority, other organisations and water users.

Race day – 9 October 2017

The first official Race Day for a decade or two was well organised, and a great success. With a westerly wind gusting to Force 4, the course was laid out from the point to a Southerly Buoy. The results after 5 races were: 1st Martin, 2nd, Simon, 3rd Darren. Thank you to Richard for organising, and the ‘three men in a boat’ (Graham, Dave, Darren) for helping to keep proceedings under control.

Everyone is looking forward to the 2018 race series.
