As your question is how do people do it i will give you my story. I am 30 and have had a challenger 7.4 (24.5 feet) for one summer as i bought it over the winter. I live in New Brunswick, Canada. I am a member of what is called a working yacht club. You have to be willing to give up a few hours a season to help out. But for a mooring line and membership it is 375 for the year for any size boat. It is 200 for winter storage and about 50 to launch and 50 for hall out. It is a very affordable way to be a sailor.
