Advice

Hello all,

I'm posting from Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada. Manitoulin is the largest freshwater island in the world and I reside on the largest fresh water lake within a freshwater lake, Lake Manitou.

I have never sailed before but dearly want to learn. I'm looking for simple boat to sail in my yard. Lake Manitou has depths over 110ft but my backyard docking is only 4 feet.

I would mostly like to play with the wind on the lake, although the possibility of an overnight stay would be nice.

Could you ultra knowledgeable folks recommend something for me, please? I was looking at a Grampian 23 but wonder about its suitability or other options.

Thanks much,
Carl
