Half an hour strong swimming is quite tiring, I would target that if you are not a regular swimmer. Also some pools' Covid restrictions mean you can only book half hour sessions.For over all core fitness and increased stamina and aerobic workout without putting pressures on older joints as mentioned above . You cannot get better than swimming.
You need to get the heart rate up and keep it steady 45 mins to 1 hour is good
Clearly if your younger fitter then other exercises are there
Also yoga to help stiff ligaments and muscles move
On long trips I have exercise bands that can go around the mast or many other variations to get a full work out.
