Any recommendations of an on-line RYA Yachtmaster theory course? ....or any providers to avoid
Looking for something additional to do to use the time spent when social distancing

That's a good suggestion - at the moment I feel that ship has sailed for me, Dear Heart presented me with a list projects that 'all need doing'
I was rather hoping to develop my skype techniques and do a bit of writing.

You could try navathome.com. I did one of their courses a few years ago, seemed OK.

It was a dark and stormy night. The rain fell in lumps onto the deserted pavement as the Webmaster wandered in a confused state. He had no idea why he was confused which, of course, naturally, fed his confusion.

A collaborative novel could be an amusing idea to waste some self isolation time. (although actually I'm supposed to be working, we've got business pretty much as usual other than some hygiene rules).

another dead bird, washed up on a foreign shore. In his heart of hearts, the Webmeister knew he had to walk away but he couldn't remember the last time he walked away from anything. Walking away was for the lilly- livered, Webmeister was not a walker away from things - although perhaps he should have walked away from a brief encounter on Carnforth Station - but that is another story - not just another story - a blasted film that had made the fortunes of Celia Howard and Trevor Johnson

acting rather aptly, he thought, of a promise of secret passion and excitement which only leads to unrequited love and misery. Webmeister hesitated but for the briefest moment and knew it would not, could not satisfy his deep desire to feel the gelcoat, see the gleam of T cut and wax. It would not take much, he pondered lazily as he glanced across the loch, just a touch here and there, tender love.
