Welcome, Suggest you take a sailing vacation
. Spend a week or two on a boat taking some classes
. You will love it or it will change your mind! As a past student I loved the Maryland school
of sailing and seamanship. There are several live aboard type schools, but I have no experience with them. I am sure you will get all the advice and more that you need. Just search and ask away! Congratulations on your coming retirement
. Your days will be much longer as you count down. It will be a long two years. Best of luck.
