How good of a sailor you become is more dependent on your aptitude combined with the quality of your instruction, then the boat you use.
Starting small and working your way up is great and most of did so out of necessity, more than as a plan. However, there are many excellent sailors that have never put the sail up on a dinghy, ever. I'm sure they had a natural aptitude for sailing. Spacial orientation, athleticism, comfort on the water, ability to think fast and others can be innate. If so, your learning curve will be faster. If not, and you push too fast, you would most likely just quit the sport.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
