CDRA is on a distinguished road
Look around your local marinas for the most common boats in the 22 to 27 ft range. Then look for one that is maybe 20 years old for sale, that does not need much work beyond cleaning and and bottom paint, with a full complement of sails.
Sail for a year or two, run aground a few times, ram your slip, and make as many mistakes you feel comfortable with, then move up to the boat you really want.
