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.

Training Day: 9th or 10th May

All members are welcome to come along and improve their skills with the assistance of our Instructors.  All aspects of your sailing can be covered; from getting to grips with the basics, right through to the carve gybe.

Please arrive by 10am to allow you time to rig up and be allocated and Instructor according to your aims/ requirements.

As this is weather-dependent, we will confirm nearer the time which day will be best,  once forecasts become clearer.

Work Party: Saturday 14th March

Please can we have some volunteers?  Many hands make light work, and the quicker the jobs are done the sooner we can go for a sail afterwards (for those that wish to).

This is our annual tidy up of the premises.  Please arrive at 10am with rake/gloves/enthusiasm  to help with the following tasks:

Washing the green slime off the Northern side of the changing rooms;

Cleaning and fixing gutters;

Tidying hedges/ stray branches;

Sweeping leaves and twigs from the car park, paths and rigging area;

Sorting out the slippery decking on the boat jetty

6 November – AGM

IMG_1651smallPicture: 30th year celebration event at Hickling earlier this year.

The East Anglian Tennis and Squash Club hosted the 2014 AGM.

We have a had another very successful year at the Club: Come and Try day, 2 training days, 30th year celebration, new carpark surface, and new changing room flooring. The Club facebook is building momentum too. Although we had a very expensive year it was decided to freeze fees for 2015. The committee says good bye to Pat, Tony, Dave, and Philip – who collectively have over 80 years committee experience! Yes, that is amazing. Martin takes on the role of Chairman, and Jeff as News Editor. Phil and Glen have joined the committee too.

21 September 2014 – more training

Thanks to Big G, Philip, Robbie, and Tone for joining me [Richard] in providing the coaching today. And thanks to all the members who turned up to participate and made it a worthwhile event. The wind was challenging at times (I was busy in the boat retrieving stray sailors from downwind, and a squall de-masted a couple of dinghies), but most people seemed to get a lot out of the session, so well done.
