Learning on a cat?

Okay folks; here's the deal. I'm learning to sail. I have NO experience whatsoever. I've been reading and watching videos like mad. I've joined a local sailing club about a week ago. The end goal is a cruiser for all oceans similar to a Manta 42. I have owned a 27friend foot Primate, and I loved that boat.

Question is, would I be doing myself a disservice by learning on a Hobbie or BeachCat vs. a dingy. I can always make the change when I've worked my way into a mid 30's boat.

Admins, please feel free to put this thread wherever it fits best.

Happy sailing,

One Shot One Kill
