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.

Come and Try Day 13 Sept 2015

Due to popular demand we are holding an additional C&T day this year.

Please note this is by appointment only. Please email the membership secretary memberships@hicklingbroad.co.uk or contact the Chairman martinhwc@btinternet.com.

We will train you on our land based simulator and take you out on the water to get you windsurfing. It’ll be good fun, and you will be entitled to reduced joining fees should you wish to join the club.

The cost is £5 per person. Please bring a swin suite, old pair of trainers, towel, and your own food and drink. If you need a wet suit too then please advise size.

Summer BBQ – Saturday 29th August 2015

Members, past members, family, and friends came along to our summer BBQ at the Pleasure Boat Inn. The weather was on our side to make this another great social event enjoyed by all.

Following a summary of the year so far by the Chairman, the excellent food was served, all washed down with a glass of one’s favourite drink.

The winner of the Guess the Year competition was awarded their prize, and some ‘excellent’ prizes were also won in the raffle.

Many thanks to all who attended, and also to the staff of the Pleasure Boat for looking after us so well.  See you at the next one.


Fun Day: Saturday 22nd August 2015


Fun day 2 Fun day 3 Fun day 1

This year luck was on our side and the weather was perfect- warm, sunny and a pleasant breeze.  Those who fancied a bit of fun racing had a great time with a qualifying session and two races.

It was also good to see quite a few new members out on the water and enjoying the club’s facilities.

As usual the hospitality department did a fantastic job of keeping everyone fuelled up and smiling, although the head chef nearly missed her race.

Let’s hope next year’s event is as good.

Come and try day: Saturday 30th May 2015

HWC C&T (23)

What a fantastic day!  Warm, sunny and a perfect breeze for learning.

It was great to see many youngsters having a go.  The feedback from everyone who attended was very positive, and several joined on the day.

Training Day: 9th May 2015

We picked the windiest day, and windy it certainly was! In fact it was so windy that the instructors were struggling. Tuition was therefore limited to theory on the beach, followed up by survival blasting. Many thanks to all who came along.
