Sailaway's got the right idea ...

I come from a big extended family, and while I laud your mother's intention of getting everyone together sailing, I'd recommend spending $25,000 on X years of vacations at some nice cottage on a lake. Take $5000 and buy a day sailer with the biggest cockpit you can find and tow it to that cottage.

If everyone turns out to love sailing and they're all fighting about getting time on the water, then start the fight about what bigger sailboat to get.
