11 June 2022 – Our legendary Come and Try Day returned.

Our 2022 visitors loved their Hickling windsurfing so much so that 35 of them joined! We had fantastic conditions and our 24 volunteers did a sterling job to look after everyone on the day.

With such a large group of new beginners, we have introduced a comprehensive support system to help them find their way around the Club, and progress to ‘full speed ahead’ asap.

Yes, it was a fantastic day!

March 2022 Update –

Please continue to respect others space, in particular the changing rooms. The changing rooms are being cleaned and sanitised generally bi-weekly, with soaps, sanitiser, and shower gel provided.
