Welcome aboard, and congratulations (it sounds like you have made it to retirement from the "real world").
I suggest that you join a local yacht club, and participate as crew in club racing. Even if you don't like the competitive aspect of racing, IMHO it is the fastest way to come "up to speed" on boat handling, close quarters manuvering (sp?), and it forces you to be out in weather that fair weather sailors usually shy away from. In short, it will make you a better sailor.
