My understanding, a test ride would start with how you get the boat ready, cast off and leave the dock. If that looks really good they may tell you to go right back and, if your docking is OK, call it good. Might want you to go out, hoist sails, tack and gibe once.

With your background I assume an interview and any questions about navigation, weather, etc would be a walk in the park.

Have you thought about chartering a $20,000 boat? Maybe then they wouldn't care even if you had trouble differentiating between port and starboard.
