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.

AGM 26 November 2015

The East Anglian Tennis and Squash Club hosted the 2015 AGM.

We have had another very successful year at the Club: 2 Come and Try days, 2 training days, fun day and summer barbecue were all well attended and benefitted from good weather.  The committee members continued to promote the club at local events and through social media. Although membership renewals were down slightly compared to last year, new members continue to join, well into November, and it was decided to freeze fees for 2016 as the club was in a healthy position.

The committee said good bye to John Christie, our long-serving Secretary, although we hope to still see him about as he has been granted free membership, along with John Tuddenham and Tony West, for the lifetime achievement awards. Wendy Harwood has taken over as Secretary and Mike Hudspith has joined the committee.

Come and Try Day 13 Sept 2015

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

Fourteen people came along to experience the fun of windsurfing and, despite the very light wind, they all enjoyed themselves.

Many thanks to all those members who helped to make this possible.

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

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.
