Beginner to Capt?

Hy there,

I am a new to the sailing world. I have only set foot on a sailing boat 10years ago and that was only for 5 hours.

Could someone please help with the followings:

How long does it take in general to learn how to sail (after you have completed the basic Keelboat handling courses)?
How many "sailing hours" do you need under your wing to be able to safely handle a 40fter?

How long does it take to have enough sailing knowledge and experience to be able to cross the Atlantic solo?

I am just a newbi, so please excuse what could be seen as completely stupid questions.


Thank you so much.

J
