Welcome to the forum. I have nothing to offer regarding the Pearson but with your time on the pond I would bet a basic sailing course will put you to sleep. I think your idea of shanghia'ing a friend to learn from is better. You could easily read/youtube it be quite successful.
I would bet you are not as much of a newbie as you think
Just my $.02
