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.

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 09.28.17
Lovely and Warm, with some very strong gusts, especially at the Southern buoy, resulted in some very challenging racing. Martin was given an unprecedented 3 minute handicap, for sailing his picnic table! Olympians galore…loads of gold, silver and bronze medals given away at the annual Fun Day.

Results. Tennis Relay: 1st (Philip and Neil), 2nd (Martin and JT), 3rd (Carl and Dave).

Slalom Ladies Gold (Wendy), Children Slalom Gold (Byony), Silver (William), Mens Gold (tied -Philip, Martin), Silver (tied Dave, Carl), Bronze (tied-Neil D, Neil W, Chris).

Fun Day – ** Now Sunday 21 August 2016 **


Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 10.47.41

Update: Changed to Sunday 21 Aug due to Saturday high wind weather warning. Beginners/improvers welcome to join in the fun but it’s likely the windy conditions will not be suitable for you.

The theme this year is centred around Olympic Windsurfing with a Tennis twist in recognition of another GB Silver medal by windsurfer Nick Dempsey, and another Gold by Andy Murray (not forgetting his win at Wimbledon this year too). The UK does appear to be a global leader in sporting success and the Hickling Windsurfers are no exception. The Fun Day budget may be a little less than for Rio, but it’s equally enjoyable and more exclusive.

Hope you can come, be prepared to join in with some light hearted games. There is something for all levels and we will tailor it as best we can depending on the weather. Arrive 10:30 and we will have one event before lunch. Expect to end around 3:30pm.

The usual high quality sausage lunch (with vegi option), banter, messing about in the water, medals, and prizes. Members only, and it’s free too!
