Help! Where to start???

My sailing experience began last summer aboard my new husband''s 22'' MacGregor in the middle of Lake Clinton just outside of Lawrence, Kansas. Having grown up on the banks of the Cottonwood River in the middle of Kansas, my boating experience was limited to ''jon'' boats and canoes. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of sailing and have agreed with my husband, whose sailing experience spans most of his life having grown up on the shores of Lake Michigan, to consider ''retiring'' in a few years and sail the world. He has mentioned things like learning diesel mechanics, learning a foreign language, advanced first aid, navigation, and sailing school for both of us. My question is - Help! Where do I start???

Any suggestions as to priorities, or helpful hints from someone in a similar situation, would be greatly appreciated.
