Congratulations on the purchase, and that's a well suited boat for your area, coastal, and occasionally shallows (I'm thinking the Keys & Sanibel, I've not actually sailed Tampa Bay). But those have water ballast system, another skipper I converse with has one, and she's crossed to the Bahamas so they can manage out in the open too. Plus being light, they can go a lot faster than traditional mono-hulls.

I have about five years of serious sailing, about 5000 nautical miles of off-shore, with ASA certifications, and would be happy to share some of the knowledge I've learned in ASA training.

Oh, a convenient way to get started that I found very valuable for the "book learning" education is at '' on-line, web based training programs. Of course, there's no substitute for being out on the water, but those folks to a great job of packaging the training content into a very well organized body of training material on their web site.

As a promotional bit, they offer two free classes (I think was sail trim and rules of the road). Then there is a rather modest fee to take additional courses to get various levels. They then tie into ICC certifications assessments to demonstrate/verify one's skill levels, I think a very worthwhile program.

Meanwhile, I'd look forward to catching up, probably post Christmas.
Cheers for now.
