try BoatUS.com for insurance.
contact the american saing association and find a sailing school near you and get a couple of ASA certifications. start with basic keelboat 101 which most schools also include a boating safety certificate. then do basic coastal cruising 103 and coastal navigation 105. this will get you over the hump. then get plenty of pratice on the water.
smooth sailing.
