Forget the 30 footer for now. Find a 10-15' dinghy to play with. You'll be able to sail often, spend very little time in boat repair/maintenance and you'll learn tons about how a sailboat works. All this for very little cash. And while you're having a ball sailing a small boat (and believe me, you will have a ball):D , you will have plenty of time to read everything you can get your hands on, meet other sailors and sail on their bigger boats, and become a reasonably competent sailor. By that time, you'll be able to make an informed decision about boats, cruising plans, other obstacles you must overcome in your quest, any number of other challenges you'll have to solve before heading 'out there.'

Check out the various threads and past articles here on Sailnet, too. There is a wealth of info here from some really great sailors. Welcome to the Net.:)
