There is not much to single handing once you are away from the dock.
Go for it! Sail in Lake Ontario. You sound like your in the same position as we are. We took ASA lessons last summer on Lake Michigan. I'm 59 and my wife is a few years younger (not allowed to say). We are in the final stages of buying our first sail boat and can't wait to get it in the water and do our first sail. If you don't do it you will regret it. Just do it and let us know how it works out for you. Best.
Thanks for the encouragement! It's reassuring to know there are many like me with similar aspirations!
