New Sailing Family - Go Ducks!

Hell from the Pacific Northwest,

My wife and I are new to sailing since our ASA 101 certification course last summer. We have two teenagers and one is also certified in basic keelboat sailing. We are looking at buying our first boat to sail locally on a lake with an active sailing community.

I'm toying with the idea of trailer sailer vs a more substantial boat like a catalina 25. We will be keeping the boat in a slip to allow easy access during the summer.

I like the idea of a Santana 23 C as a starter boat. We loved learning on the J-24. We have friends who have done some cruising in the San Juan Islands and would like to work up to that in a few seasons. Any suggestions on the Cat 25 vs the more mobile trailer sailer?
