I don't wish to start talking about CORVID-19 as we could all do with the distraction of sailing stories, but before I think of some new threads, can I check...

Are any Ransome fans out there feeling isolated or struggling to get supplies delivered? There is a high chance that many of our members are in the older 'at risk' groups.

If you need help then please do use this discussion thread as a way to reach out. I can't promise immediate deployment of pemmican and bunloaf, but there will be a sympathetic ear, and ideas of what can be done.

In the meantime, let's keep chatting about our favourite books, and maybe even use this quiet period of less distraction to turn our hand to writing or drawing! Even if it's not a skill you're great at, you can get better with practice.

Finally - if you've been ignoring Facebook for the past decade, refusing to be drawn into social media, thinking it is all bad... well, now might be the time to reconsider. You get out of it what you want to. It isn't "good" or "bad" - it is just a tool. It is free to sign up for an account, and then you can participate in the active Arthur Ransome group. It has a slightly different flavour to TarBoard, but is enjoyable. I think you can enjoy both at once. Neither will replace the other! Link below.
