The one week "cruise and learn" programs that operate in our neck of the woods are a great way to start - you get the theory, the practice that goes with the learn to sail part, but you also get the exposure to cruising, anchoring and beautifully scenic spots, the whole concept of "living" on the boat and there are usually other paricipants so you get the whole crew "team" exposure as well. (As well as tolerance of others in close quarters)

These, too, could be taken separately as SD suggests though usually couples get a slightly better rate. If you each took the course from a different instructor you may get a more rounded experience when you work together on your own later on.
