Hickling Broad Sailing Club CIO

Welcome to Hickling Broad Sailing Club.

Young or old, experienced racer or complete novice our club has much to offer, from a friendly helping hand to get you started to a full programme for the racing enthusiast. We offer training days for both junior and adult members of all abilities with the juniors also getting a very popular ‘Tsail’ Tuesday evening club during the summer period.

And what a setting! The safe non-tidal waters of Hickling Broad, fringed with reed beds, is part of an ecologically unique and scenic national nature reserve, abundant with rare wildlife, including bitterns, swallowtail butterflies and protected plants. The reserve forms part of the wider Broads National Park, much of which is accessible to the cruising enthusiast.

We have the advantage that there is nearly always a good breeze on Hickling Broad and when the sea breeze kicks in on a balmy summer afternoon, Hickling sailors will still be enjoying themselves when more inland clubs have abandoned activities.

Run by dinghy sailors for dinghy sailors.  We are in the enviable position of being one of the very few ‘dinghy only’ clubs in the broads area and the only one with such a large sailing area and direct access to the Broads river system.  If you love your dinghy sailing then Hickling Broad is THE place to sail.

We are also an RYA Sailing and Power Boat Training Centre offering courses to club members.
