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 email@example.com. There’s also further information on joining here. If you simply want more information then ring Dave Black on 01953 606532 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is as much a social as it is an AGM. The meeting is to formalise the end of the club year and agree committee members for 2014. We do have 3 committee member vacancies so please consider joining the committee. We meet monthly at a pub in Little Plumstead to monitor progress, review any issues and decide next steps.
The club is very special being one of a few dedicated to windsurfing in the UK, possibly the only one. This is a result of careful management for 30 years, and so great care is needed to help it through the next 30 years. The fundamentals of windsurfing have changed little, but legislative responsibilities and communications technology have changed enormously.
The committee are responsible for all of the club: the car park, beach, leases, boat, facilities, events, accounts, web site, communications, bills, and membership renewals. The committee have a wide range of skills to do these things but the more the merrier, and the stronger the club will be. If you are interested then please either discuss with the chairman (telephone number above) prior to the meeting or let us know on the night.
It will be great to see you there.
St Andrews Football Club, Laundry Lane, Norwich NR7 0XQ 7:30pm for an 8.00pm prompt start.

Regrettably the forecast was rain and we couldn’t get the retractable roof to close, so the fun day was cancelled.
We have had good weather over the years, this year our luck ran out.
The weather has been really odd this year and today was no exception. Anyone who was driving through the ice and water in Norwich earlier in the morning would have thought it was December.
It’s quite amazing that budding windsurfers made the trip to Hickling and took to the water in 20 + mph winds for their first sail. Very satisfying to see everyone doing so well, and in particular the children for showing so much gusto (our future windsurfers?) – wow well done guys.
The operation ran like clock work with cakes, tea/coffee, booking systems, changing tents, pontoons and support staff all being in the right place at the right time to put on a show to be proud of.
Apologies to those members that turned up for a sail. We realise there was a gap in our communications this year and thank you for bearing with us today.
A great relief to know that it’s business as usual down on the Broad after such a cold start to the year. This is backed up by a flurry of emails and forum updates reporting some excellent windsurfing conditions in the last few weeks. We also have the comfort of knowing that last summer was one of the wettest on record, so surely the prospects for good conditions has to be better this year.
