Question Newcomer to sailing

I am interested in starting with a small boat, perhaps a sunfish. There is a small beach club near my house where you can keep boats in the water tied off to a floating dock. Can a Sunfish stay in the water for an entire season? Does the daggerboard come out or stay in place if it is left in the water?

If I go another route and take it to a public boat launch, how do you get it off the trailer. It would be myself and my wife who is not particularly strong. Forgive my ignorance, but these basic questions have me scrathing my head trying to figure out how to make this work.

We spent the better part of 2 days of the July 4 weekend sailing a Sunfish and really got excited and would like to get a boat.

If anyone can help answer these questions I would greatly appreciate it.
