Re: From Dinghy Sailor to Cruising
You probably can get most of what you need from doing what you are doing - reading, study, etc. There are some tricks associated with motoring, docking, anchoring, but it's not that difficult. Perhaps someone with big boat experience can go out with your on your new boat or you can go out on their boat. It's harder to sail a small boat, in general. Bigger boats are harder to maintain and dock.
If you have specific questions once you buy or want some specific type of practice, let me know and I'll help you out.
