New Guy Looking for Guidance

I'm a 45 year old, land-locked guy from Greenville, SC, who really wants to return to sailing. I grew up sailing on lakes in the Carolina's, racing everything from Y-flyers to J24s and such, but stopped when I went off to college. Now I would like to learn to sail well enough to take my family of 5 on bareboat charter adventures up and down the east coast, but don't know where to start exactly. I have found an ASA school in Charleston, SC, and they offer a wide variety of courses, but I haven't a clue as to what is actually required by law, by charter companies, or simply to be safe. Ultimately, I would like to own my own boat, but that would be several adventures down the road. Advice, anyone?
