Re: can I afford to continue sailing

I have a small 14' dinghy sailboat (Lido 14) that I trailer.I also am a member of a sailing club in San Diego. It was a one time up front fee of$295 which included the ASA 101 class for free. I rent the larger boats and the monthly dues($30) are applied to the rental. I am able to go out for 4 hrs on a Catalina 22 for $45. other days , I sail the Lido. This arrangement works for me. Dock fees here run between $13 -20 per foot with long waiting times to acquire a slip. Maybe a similar arrangement might help you in your situation
