I agree with the others. Get out there sailing. Get some miles under your keel
and have fun.
Hang out here and join in the many topics of conversation about sailing and cruising and over time you will make up your own answers.
With the very limited info I have from your post I would recommend a smaller production boat in the 28-30 foot range as a starter boat. Get one with lazy jacks and furling
genny that is easy to single
hand. This will encourage you to get on the water
a lot and that's a great thing. When you sell it you shouldn't lose much but will have gained tons of experience.
