Having only recently gotten back into sailing again, I can second the above suggestions for books, particularly "The Complete Sailor." I also found out rapidly that there were numerous 'essentials' that I just couldn't appreciate from books, and a couple of short evening courses from the local sailing club was invaluable, even if you don't have time for a weekend course. One of the greatest aspects of sailing is that I have haven't met a sailor that won't gladly take the time to answer a couple of simple questions, and help out where he/she can, and the practical advice from the local sailing classes can save you many hours of research the misdirection. Good luck, and stick to it!
