All good tips, but my advice is different. Buy a sailboat and start sailing. The size of the boat is not important. You'll find that reading about the subject, and even going along as crew, will not be as productive for you as it would be if you were also messin around with your own boat.-stiff wind
Stiff wind, OP originally asked himself about Downtown Sailing Center. No one would dispute that having your own boat would actually speed up the learning curve. While it is tre hat xperience is a great teacher, sometimes having someone more knowledgeable with you can get you to a more advanced state and explain way.

When you teach yourself you cant learn anymore than the knowledge/ experience you have will let you. I believe in learning from people with more knowledge than I have. I autmatically become the self limiting factor when I learn from myself

BTW you can do both
