newbie needing info

I am only an intermediate sailor, having sailed on small boats all my life but new to larger sloop designs. I learned to sail on a Laser, and have felt that it was a very good way to develop an understanding of the wind and the subtle nuances of sailing. Read up about them, and see whether they would suit your desires. (Like the reply above, it is difficult to determine your experience level.) I recommend hiring a surveyor before buying any boat. They can inform you of any problem areas of a particular boat, and you may find that you learn a great deal in the process.
