Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

Ok, but some form of sailing can be done relatively cheaply. For us, its just the dockage that costs anything, and we have a slip behind a waterfront bar that has no service and cheap docks. I would like to get a bigger boat and cruise.. but for right now my car insurance is far more than my annual sailing budget, a single monthly tuition payment for one kid was more than my annual sailing budget last year. There is a middle ground between a windsurfer and a 38' boat.
