start smaller. you'll learn more, faster, with lighter consequences, on a small boat.
Take classes. trial and error is a hard teacher.
Try different boats before you commit to one.
I would suggest you check out the Puget Sound Sailing Club, consider joining at the "gold" level, take all the classes they have and sail every chance you get for a year. Then if you still like it, spring for the big boat.
