welcome to the water
Time on the water is good, however you can get it. Getting on crew lists, hanging out at marinas, joining sailing clubs, going to seminars, taking classes, helping out with running races, puttering around with small dinghies, and learning to handle the complexities of bigger or more technical boats -- all are good.
There is no one perfect boat
(except maybe your "next one").
You can learn the basics of sailing in a day.
And spend the rest of your life trying to master it.
