Having learned on a 15 foot sloop, handling a Beneteau 393 seemed like a piece of cake! I'm sure many fine sailors started on larger boats, to be sure, but it seems like you develop a feel for the wind and boat interaction more directly on a smaller boat that responds quicker and more dramatically to the wind. Just my opinion from someone still very close to the beginning, with lots yet to learn.
