first boat advice

I'm looking for a starter daysailer for 1-4/weekend cruiser for 1-2, something that works in the atlantic (georgia and texas) and lakes (clarks hill lake in georgia). i know those are very different waters, but i'm in the military and those are my locked locations for the next 4 years.

i've never captained myself (class scheduled) but loved sailing with friends and family. i want a daysailer i can weekend on to see how i like living aboard for when i get out (once the army finishes training me as a nurse i'm going into travel nursing). also, military income limits my choices to 5-7k, roughly.

any advice on models or just general advice would be GREAT. thanks!
