My usual recommendation is to start small. A smaller boat will teach you more about boat handling a lot quicker than a larger boat will.
However, the E27 is a great boat and likely could be picked up for a song in today's market. For weekend getaways, it would be much more comfortable than either of the others and the E27 sails well and isn't too big as a learning platform.
Good luck. You can't make a bad choice.
