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.

2018 AGM Update

Very satisfying to hear the club delivered to it’s 2018 manifesto and much more. Memberships up 10%, 8 new instructors trained (see pic), 22 beginners trained, 50 taster sessions….the list goes on. Awesome support from the lovely volunteers, instructors, the RYA, Hickling Broad Sailing Club, and the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.

** Honorary membership awarded to Graham Ives for outstanding long term service to the club**

2018 What’s on

More events and support for members than ever before, here they are so you don’t miss out. The RYA recognise we have a great training set-up, so have just awarded us their Training ‘tick’ logo. What a compliment!

20 May – Come and Try day

We do like our open days, and this year’s was up there with our best. Our visitors must have thought so too, as a staggering 77% of them joined, which is quite an improvement on the 5% from last year. That’s astonishing. A lot of hard work and a beer after. Well done to the 20+ volunteers who made this possible: Gareth, Wendy, John, Patricia, Philip, Keith, Roger, Glynis, Darren, Jeff, Simon, David, Steve, Chris, Darren, Sam, Wendy, Neil, David, Paul and Tone.

 

 

“We wish…

you a merry Xmas and a happy new year”

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.
