Ran across a thread that had a comment in it that somewhat gave off the idea that to be a successful sailor and sailing yacht owner you needed to have an excess of money. I am 15 years old with no job and I have a San Juan 23. Am I considered a sailor or yachtsman? I usually don't have money to pay for specific parts or service on my boat,but I put time,creativity,and the little money I do have into my boat to make it usable and worth my time. So my question is, Do you have to be wealthy to own and sail a sailing yacht and be a successful sailor?
