Perhaps this is old hat, but I remember my father telling me when I was a young lad, "Son, if you want to know what sailing is all about, just get in the shower with your clothes on, turn on the cold water, and eat a soggy peanut butter sandwich. While you're doing all this, drop a $20 down the drain every 2 minutes."

For some reason, I'm still here with my soggy sandwich shovin' 20's down the drain.
