Racing on Lake Erie

I''m probably moving my small Hunter (18.5) to the western end of Lake Erie for the 2001 sailing season, and would like to get started racing. I''m not a very experienced sailor, though I''ve had the boat for a few years, and have never raced. I wonder if anyone on the list sails and/or races in the Sandusky Bay area, or around the islands on the western side of Lake Erie. How would I get started racing? Would I find a class for my boat? I don''t mind finishing last, and figure that the best way to become a better sailor is by sailing, and specifically by racing! Any thoughts from anyone out there would be appreciated.
Thanks for your comments.
