20 hours on diesel this summer. change oil or not?

Because of a medical issue and other things I only put about 20 hours on my Morgan sailboat with a Perkins 4-108. I usually change oil and filter at the end of summer. Should I bother with such low hours on this year or what. I know the hard fast rule is to change every year or x hours but I would like some realistic opinions. Is it really needed ?
