In my humble opinion, learning to sail on a dinghy is a great way to get acquainted with sailing. If you are located somewhere in Lower Mainland, BC we can assume you are either surrounded by mountains and lakes or mountains, islands and sea so you should research what places/schools/camps that offer dinghy sailing programs and are nearby. You will learn a lot more about being in control of a ship, even if it is a Sunfish or Optimist, then you would on a bigger and heavier boat at first.
Try now. Buy later.
Try some boats out that you can rent through a sailing program and figure out what size boat you want and what size boat you can reasonably afford.
Whatever you do, find a way to get on sailboat of any kind.
