Britain and the Sea - A Talk by Sam Llewellyn

Sam Llewellyn is a native of the Isles of Scilly and has been messing about in boats all his life. He is the author of a dozen seagoing thrillers, including a continuation of The Riddle of the Sands , and a columnist for (among other organs) Practical Boat Owner magazine and the RYA.

Scandinavian Christmas Market - Albion Street, Rotherhithe

It doesn't get more Christmassy than this! Especially if its freezing cold and drizzling. But do not fear, the place will be full of warm waffles, hot chocolate and weird cuts of meat to keep you cosy. Arthur Beale will be there as London's largest stockist of Norwegian Devold Woollens and Merino Thermals. There will be Ship Biscuits, Arctic Pilots and anything else we can think of even remotely connected to our Scandinavian friends. I draw the line at hats with horns on but we will let Noggin the Nog in. Come along and get festive.

The book can also be purchased in advance on this website - just bring your receipt for free admission. Dave Selby is a passionate but useless sailor who's been fumbling around the east...
