We humans, and indeed most animals, are drawn to water and playing in it. When the days are hot or you’re on holiday, there’s nothing like diving into sea, river or lake to cool down. Not content with just a swim though, adventurous folks have created many, many ways to make playing in the water even more fun – and most involve going fast whilst trying to avoid a sinking feeling.
Here’s our pick of water sports to try this summer whether you’re out and about in Blighty or on further shores.
This week we discovered the amazing sand art of Kiwi artist Jamie Harkins.
Jamie works from his studio in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. His art emcompasses many themes, styles & mediums and he’s known for surrealist landscapes, bright colours and treatment of light. However it is his 3D ‘perspective’ sand art that has caught people’s attention all around the world.
The technique is known as anamorphosis. The image itself is distorted, but when viewed from a specific vantage point, a 3D effect on a 2D surface is achieved.
Here are some of our favourite creations, all done with just a few rakes and the odd stencil!
A summer heatwave has been mooted by several sources over the last few weeks – of course this does seem to happen every year – so who knows if it will actually happen. Last year was definitely a hot one and it caught quite a few of us off guard. Some studies suggest that by 2040 most summers will be scorchers so it’s good to be prepared. But aside from stockpiling ice, what can you do? We thought we'd take a look at some top sizzling summer survival ideas.
Often the Great British weather has other ideas when it comes to coinciding with our bank holidays or summer breaks. Whether you’re out camping, sailing or just at home it helps to have some back up plans in place should the heavens open and wash away your best laid plans of a country walk in the sunshine. Here are a few of our favourites...
Spring is one of the finest times of year for a spot of photography. Especially if you get the walking boots on and venture off into the great outdoors. There’s cherry blossom and daffodils, fields of rapeseed and fields of lambs, as well as the first deckchairs on the beach and mackerel on the barbecue – they can all make great shots.
You don’t need top of the range equipment to take beautiful pics, if you’ve got a good photographer’s eye and an iPhone you’ll be able to take some pretty snaps to share. Here are some of our favourite Spring photos from users on photo sharing app, Instagram.
Here at Chatham, a splash of spring sunshine has got our thoughts quickly turning to potential barbecues, al fresco dining and picnics on the beach – and with all this outdoor eating on the horizon, we thought it was a good idea to look at what foods are currently in season and ready to be devoured.
Modern day supermarkets mean that we're usually lucky enough to be able to get whichever foodstuffs we want, whatever the time of year, from somewhere in the world. But is there anything better than some fresh British produce grown in and around our own shores? Grab your boots and walk down to the woods for some foraging, or if your shoes are more tailored to the straw-strewn floors of the nearest farmer's market - pop down there instead.
Either way, if you’d like to get your tastebuds tingling this spring, here are a few tasty treats that are in season in April and May - and you might just find some of them in the supermarket too!
Throughout history sailing has taken us to the extremes of the world, exploring new territories, going further than ever before, and doing so faster than ever before; as well as giving us some of the most impressive technical undertakings.
This week we’ve collected a handful of the extremes of sailing from Britain and around the world for you to take in from the comfort of home - though perhaps you might don your deck shoes and see some in the flesh too...

"0900 on a windy February Sunday Morning - air temperature is 7C and the water a bracing 8C. 12 Illusions are being craned into Bembridge Harbour on the Isle Of Wight for a morning of top class racing. I am wearing a brand new pair of Chatham Cruz II boots to replace a leaky 3 year old pair of botos of Irish origin."
