This sailing others peoples boats thing is looking like work

Sat AM I drive to Mystic where I audit the first day of an ASA 101 course seeing if I can impress the owner enough to give me a job.

In the afternoon I drive to Westbrook where I skipper for a special needs sailing group.

This AM my wife and I drive to Haverstraw NY and jump on an Aloha 34 and do some sailing and docking practice in the mighty Hudson in 20 to 25 knots of apparent.

Now I'm pooped. At least I can go to work tomorrow and rest up.

I was thinking I might like to do this for retirement.
Now I'm thinking it might be a lot less tiring to just keep working.
