Re: What kind of work do you do to finance your sailing?
Another retired teacher, it is an interesting problem. I used to teach in an inner city school (even though it was in the suburbs) and spent much of my time telling kids that they could go to university if they wanted to. Then I switched to an upper-middle class area with many immigrant parents who stressed university from day one of the kid's life. The problem there was that every kid had to go to university no matter what their interests and abilities were. I think it may be changing though (slowly) as parents are starting to realize that there are a lot of unemployed (or underemployed) teachers, accountants, lawyers, etc out there.
Finishing our major refit. Our trip to Newfoundland is off because it is too late. Hoping to go to the North Channel instead.
