Best way to learn how to sail?

I''m 48 and have taking up sailing just this year after having never sailed before (To speak of). We purchased a very used Cal25 back in May and sail it on a lake. Even though my wife and I dearly love the Cal and feel that it is stable, fairly responsive, comfortable and easy to sail, in hindsight, I really wish we had bought a smaller day sailer, for all the reasons Jeff mentioned, to start with then move to the big cruiser after gaining experience.
