Rowing in the fog, birdwatching on a sandbank, holidaying with the Chancellor, sitting down to a German dinner party. It's all here...
 
We’re now at the most important moment of the book, and the section that could be claimed to have secured the reputation of ‘The Riddle of the Sands’ as one of the greatest British adventure novels of all time. It’s the row to the island of Memmert in a thick fog on October 22: a fantastic feat of navigation and physical strength by our two heroes, Carruthers and Davies.

But can it actually be done? And what of the dinner afterwards at the Dollmans on the Schwannallee in Norderney? This podcast covers amazing feats of dinghy rowing, bird wardens, the holiday exploits of Chancellor von Bülow, and German (and Norwegian) dinner parties.

There’s barely a couple of pages covering October 20 in ‘The Riddle of the Sands’, but somehow we’ve managed to create an information-packed podcast out of it. We include a bit of Roman history, ob...

At last our heroes Carruthers & Davies arrive at the East Frisian islands. It’s October 15, and, in a curious reversal of roles, Davies is quaffing pink gin in a bar, whilst Carruthers is dealing with intruders on the boat.

In this podcast you can learn why Wangerooge is rarely in the same place in any given century, how to mix a delicious pink gin (with proper German gin), and how the Frisians used dykes, drainage and ‘siels’ to build a nation – and create a stink.

We’re meant to be talking about October 6 in ‘Riddle of the Sands’, but frankly this is a period in the book where not a lot is happening, and we’re essentially gearing up for the main spying actio...

The mission is far from over. If anything, the death of Bowie should spur us on. Even in his last weeks, Bowie was dressing up, rehearsing the journey towards death by lying in a bed blindfold, walking backwards into a wardrobe and closing the door. #bowie   #golfonthemoon   #davidbowie  #golf #moon

Finally, after months of talking about having an adventure, Lloyd (notDavies) and Tim (notCarruthers) head off to Germany, using The Riddle of the Sands as their guide.

It’s October 2 - 4, both in the book and in the real world. The route is Holtenau to Brunsbüttel. But how does the Germany of today match up to the world of Carruthers and Davies in 1898?

As we enter a 10-day period of relative quiet in the Sands (story-wise) relating to October 6 - 15, we use the spare time to go to the movies. Thanks to Arthur Beale, we got to watch the 1978 film ...
