learning to sail

I have been a power boater for 15 years and lived aboard our 40’ cruiser for extended periods of time. So I have some general boating experience. I am looking into sailing. How many sailors take formal sailing lesions? I took an introductory class and it seems there are some technical basics I need to learn. Can I learn them online & than practice on the water? I am looking at a 30’ sailboat for starters.
