Winter Exclusion Zones
The club has agreed to co-operate with the Broads Authority in not sailing in some areas of Hickling Broad during the winter months. Access to the broad is conditional on the club agreeing not to sail inthese areas. These parts of the broad are to be zoned off for winter bird refuges.
The zones will be marked with buoys and should not be entered from 1st November until 28th February.
It is very important for the club that these no sailing zones are strictly observed, failure to comply could lead to a fine of £20,000.
The no sailing zones are shown on the map below. (November to February inclusive)
