Blackwater Country Show - Try SUP

sup - Up to 10 people


If you are coming to the Blackwater Country Show are we delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to try SUP at the neighbouring Home Water Lake. This lake is on the site adjacent to the showground (other side of the road) and easy walking distance from the showground carparks.

In this short fun SUP session, a BSUPA Qualified Instructor will give you a short introduction to the equipment and the sport and get you launched, then you can enjoy this beautiful lake with approximately an hour on the water.

You must be over 18 years old and able to swim 25m clothed. Children aged 11-17 years MUST be accompanied in the activity, on the water, by their parent or legal guardian (this is a strict rule, sorry, but no aunts, uncles or older siblings etc. Thanks.) So the parent or legal guardian needs to book themselves a space in the activity along with their child.

Choose either the session at the beginning of the show day 10:30am-12noon or at the end of the show day 3pm-4:30pm. When you leave the showground you need to get your hand stamped if you wish to re-enter. We will have a stand at the show ground so you can always come and say hello there if you need directions to Home Water.

Please note that there is absolultely NO PARKING ON THE LAKE SITE and this offer is specifically for people attending the Blackwater Coutry Show, who will be parking in the showground carparks. The local roads do get very congested so please do not book yourself onto this session unless you are coming to the Blackwater Country Show.

Please meet us at Home Water, Chigborough Road, Heybridge, CM9 4RE. (Entrance with a metal gate and small wooden hut at the bend in the road). Many thanks!

What to bring

Bring a bottle of water, clothes and a pair of old trainers (all of which you are happy to get wet), a towel, plus a change of clothes. The facilities on site are limited but there is a loo and a pavillion to change in.


You must be able to swim 25m clothed.


If you need to cancel and want a refund, please do so within 48 hours of the start time of your booking.

Although we hope you don't need to cancel your booking, you can do so at any time up to 48 hours prior the start time of the booked SUP activity and receive a full refund. If you cancel within 48 hours of the start time of the booked SUP activity, or you are very late for or do not attend the booked SUP activity (i.e. a ‘no-show’) you will not receive a refund. Thanks for your understanding.
