This week, Lloyd (aka NotDavies) has disappeared on to the Continent, so Tim is sailing solo. Luckily, we recorded a couple of discussions before Lloyd left, interviewed an experienced ocean sailer at a club in London, and also received some gripping material from several Adventure Club members.

We discuss: the size of Carruthers’s luggage (00:34); the search for a Flensburg carpenter (03:50); Kass Schmitt tells us about the perils of a first visit to a ships chandlers and where it might take you (06:08); how to join the Riddle of the Sands Adventure Club (17:50); another visit to a pipe shop and BIG news about the supposedly mythical Raven Mixture (19:15)

"We, as humans, are having to deal with, and possibly master, increasingly complex systems."
A couple of months ago, the Information Age gallery at the Science Museum was officially opened by The Queen. I’m really proud and pleased to have helped devise and create an installation for the Web section of the gallery. The...

http://www.footballersunited.co.uk  is on the BBC Home Page right next to Portillo's lovely lime jacket #winning
Footballers United is a unique, new telling of how football and friendship got people fighting. From top of the league to mired in the trenches – find out how Scotland’s top footballers gave up an unassailable league lead to fight. Discover how the women of Scotland took their place in factories and on the pitch – only to then face a 50 year football ban.

The New Years Resolution to blog more regularly failed to make it even into April. Luckily not many people have noticed. My excuse – no, my *reason* - for not blogging is the usual one: a whole load of proper...

In 1982, Syd Barrett – the semi-mythical founding member of Pink Floyd - finally gave up on life in London and walked to his mum’s house in Cambridge. Nobody can quite say how long he took to walk to Cambridge...

Join the Riddle of the Sands Adventure Club today: http://riddleofthesands.net/wordpress/how-to-join-in/
 
In this episode, we discover the addictive delights of pipe smoking, track down a place where we might all go and learn how to shoot, discuss the portability of Rippingille stoves and mourn the fate of Dresden  – and then, bathed in a nicotine haze, we cover a range of ‘Club Business’ items. From Hugh Childers setting us straight about his grandfather through to the near-universal love of Arthur Beale (although Aunt Liz prefers ‘The Welsh Harp’…?) and on to themed biscuits, membership badges, the sizing of rigging screws and the delightful offer of day’s small boat sailing in the Dengie peninsula. Surely you want to join the Club now.

A new project by me and +Lloyd Shepherd 
What better way to celebrate the launch of the The Riddle of the Sands Adventure Club than with our first pilot podcast. In it you’ll hear us – Lloyd and Tim – discuss what we’re up to with this ad...

Over a year after Somethin’ Else and I first pitched the concept to the BBC, Footballers United is finally out there. Exciting!

It’s the story of the legendary Hearts football team who gave up glory on the pitch to go and fight in the war in 1914-18. It’s also the story of the women of Scotland who loved football, and who found freedom and independence (well, a bit anyway) through playing the beautiful game as members of war munitions factory football teams.

A few weeks back, Andy, Lloyd and I decided to emulate the late, great Roger ‘Syd’ Barrett, by walking out of London and heading for Cambridge - see previous post. We took three days, and covered 50 miles or so...
