Hi! Bought a sailboat without knowing how to sail..

Hi there, I new to boating in general and very new to sailing (ive only sailed a sunfish.) But I purchased my first boat just last week and love it so far. Its a 1983 25ft Watkins fixed keel. She has a few minor deck leaks and a clogged head, but other than that she is ready to sail. Im a design engineer by trade so I plan on doing all the work myself such as redoing the entire wiring harness, rebedding and fixing the deck leaks, and maybe even fixing that clogged head. Id like to get her in prestine condition and doing some weekend cruises to the bahamas before potentially upgrading to someting bigger that could be a livaboard.
