Why would you feel you need more "formal training" for a bigger boat. I've never even been on a boat less than 33' and always wonder why people are so afraid of a 40' boat.
I agree. I don't think it is a matter of formal training as much as just getting experience.

The biggest issue I've seen with smaller boat sailors moving up is their being surprised by the forces on the larger boats and this sometimes highlights improper habits which they get away with on the smaller boat.
