New to Sailing, please Help =)

I was wondering if someone can tell me the basic differences between sloop, cutter,ketch etc. I am really a neophyte.

I am primarily interested in a 30 footer (roughly) for some coastal sailing and the odd day cruise or fishing (Vancouver Island, Desolation Sound et al)

Well I am going to go read the new books I picked up, but some insight as to what type of boat I should be looking at would be a great help.
