If your goal is only to sail your boat a few times, then you should be able to find an experienced sailor to sail with you and keep you out of trouble. On the other hand, if you really want to be able to sail your boat by yourself, then you might want to go through a course like those taught at Annapolis Sailing School (where your boat originally came from). Your problem is bigger than can be learned in a couple lessons. To safely sail your boat by yourself you not only need to know how to rig and sail your boat, but minimally how to navigate (piloting), and know the rules of the road.
