Totally agree that a friend or coach will help you learn the ropes faster than a structured course. I''ve taught sailing as an ASA instructor and one-on-one. There's nothing quite like one-on-one.
You will pick things up fast. Once you feel comfortable, ask your friend to sit back and let you "single hand" the boat as if he or she weren't aboard. I ended up loving singlehanding so much, I became a die-hard addict. And, you really become a better sailor--more aware and more independent. Good luck!
