Hey nauti - welcome to SN. I sail a Catalina 27. It's a definitely a small space - and we've only overnighted on ours - but I'd say it will be an experience of a lifetime without a doubt.

Hopefully you've got good ways to keep yourselves cool/warm as needed. With a tight space - every creature comfort counts.

As for the sailing, find someone in the marina who will be willing to take you out and show you how to get from point A to B. It won't take you long to get the basics down.

And ask whatever questions you need to here. Lots of experience sailors willing to help us newbs.

Have fun.

PS - Check out the "Living Aboard" thread. Lots of great info there.
