Welcome to SailNet. Where are you located? In many places where sailing is somewhat popular there are places that offer sailing classes, from small boats to big boat sailing, basics to highly advanced sailing. Often they are ASA classes, so there's a specific curriculum, test, and resulting qualification to be had. You might want to see if any of these are available.
This part is just a personal opinion, but I would recommend starting on smaller boats. They are very simple in terms of operation, and they allow you to focus specifically on learning to sail, rather than things like electrical systems and engines. You can always move up to larger boats once you have the basics. Again, just my two cents...
