Beginner Windsurfing Course – June 2017

 

The June training course was the highlight of the windsurfing year for me so far. 6 new members did extremely well to grasp the theory and getting to grips with the sport and doing very well as you can see. The 2nd time Richard and Martin have put on a course, and after receiving top marks from the student feedback scores then we are getting quite good at it too! Thanks to the volunteer instructors, Keith, and Paul for giving up their time for free.

Lots of sailing despite the wind blowing from all directions at once! Well done […]

Dave Black – very sad news

Dave passed away yesterday morning (24 May), after several months of declining health. Dave has been a long standing member, on the committee for at least a couple of decades, membership secretary, and a very progressive Club Chairman (2009 to 2014). The Club boat, beginner equipment, and team of RYA instructors are all down to the grants Dave secured for the Club. Our thoughts go out to Judith and family at this difficult time. We will be thinking of Dave when we are next out on the water. Martin.

21 May 2017 Come and Try day write up.

With 25 volunteers (yes 25!), over a hundred visitors, 45 trained and windsurfing then this was another great open day to remember. The team worked hard to squeeze as many visitors on the day as possible, probably a record? So thanks go to Tone, John, Peter, Gillian, Leisl, Wendy, Steve, Paul, Trish, Chris, Neil, Darren, Keith, Richard, Simon, Martin, Wendy, Chris, Jeff, Gillian, Gareth, Dave, and Glen.

Excellent weather, great company – another perfect day at the Club. Let us know if you are interested in the June and July 2 day windsurfing courses. email martinhwc@btinternet.com

The Windsurfing Beach – 2017 and beyond

In August 2016 it came as a bit of a shock to learn our beach landlord had decided to sell the northern part of Hickling Broad, which naturally raised concerns with us, our neighbours, and other water users too.

The Norfolk Wildlife Trust are soon to be our new landlords. Brendan Joyce, Chief Executive of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust says:

“Norfolk Wildlife Trust wants to work positively with everyone who uses Hickling Broad including the sailing, angling and windsurfing interests to ensure we can maintain and protect its internationally important wildlife. This is a real opportunity to work together in […]
