Boat recommendations for a Newbe


I'm looking to purchase my first Sailboat and I'm overwhelmed by all the different models available.

I would like to purchase a Boat between 24' and 30' to learn to Sail. I would primarily Sail The Great Sacandaga and Lake Champlain in NY.

I would like to sail this Boat for about 7 years and then buy a 32' or larger Boat to make trips down to Florida and possibily the Bahama's.

I have been advised to look at the Bristol 24 - 29 models and I do like that design.

All recommendations and any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You
