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.

Jan/Feb dredging work !!

Please note the dredging works have started and expected to be complete by the end of February. Mud will be pumped via a floating pipe West to East across the Broad! We will need to be very careful to navigate safely around the equipment. Windsurfers will be cut off from the broad from 12 Feb. Due to the cold weather, and hazards on the Broad it’s probably best to keep away.

  • w/c 29 Jan – Dredging equipment being set up on the water
  • The dredging operation will start in Area A and work northwards.
  • The dredging vessel and pipeline will be marked with buoys and clear signage to warn users of the Broad of its location and working area. Please be aware that the dredging vessel works along a tensioned wire rope and has a trailing floating pipeline; these will be marked to indicate the hazard to all water users.
  • From 12 Feb During the period of dredging within Area C, the pipeline will stretch West to East across the broad blocking access to the Broad from the Windsurfing club (as notified within Notice to Mariners http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/__data/assets/word_doc/0006/1080717/NTM-1-of-2018_Hickling-Broad.doc ).

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.
