I think you only need enough experience to find out if you really want to invest the time, energy and money into sailing. Lessons are a great way to start.

Not only does a small boat help skills, but if it is a trailerable boat, you will save dock fees.

Dinghy or small 1-2 man boat is good way to start. Hard to develop experience and competence without owning your own.
