Things To Do When Locked-Down

Since we expect to be locked-down for a while, we thought that the CBYA should provide some useful tips to stop our members from getting bored! Here are the first FIVE

  1. Free streaming from The Metropolitan Opera (
  2. Free streaming from The Royal Opera House (
    The program for the Royal Opera House performances, which all start at 1900 hours GMT  and can be viewed via their Facebook or YouTube sites, is as follows.

    • 27 March – Peter and the Wolf – Ballet
    • 3 April – Acis & Galatea – Opera
    • 10 April –  Cosi Fan Tutti  – Opera
    • 17 April – The Metamorphosis – Modern Ballet 
  3. Free streaming from The Berlin Philharmonic (
  4. WORDSCAPES – a great free game in the Play Store for android or IOS, phone or tablet, but beware, it’s addictive! Tips;
    • Don’t buy any of the additional packages.
    • Daily puzzle gives you extra points for the main game.
    • Play off-line or in airplane mode and you don’t get bothered by the adverts.
  5. Free Virtual Sailing courtesy of the RYA and Virtual Regatta ( We can set up our own CBYA ‘ custom races’ if we get enough interest. Those who would like to join in with our ‘custom races’ must also create an account if they don’t already have one. You can follow a simple sailing instruction session, and then start practicing in the races and regattas that are already set up on the game. Everyone that creates an account will also be automatically be entered into the GBR National Championships! You can get more information on the  RYA eSailing page.  You will also view a guide by clicking HERE.  If you would like more information, contact Rachel Garnham by clicking HERE.

Have fun!
