New sailor, sailboat owner, sailnet member, from Toronto

Hi everyone. I am finally getting around to joining, having been exploring this site for a while.
A bit about me, long time powerboater, paddler and laser sailor, spent last summer learning to sail keelboats with the CYA. The bug bit hard and 'made' me shop for a boat to enjoy around Western Lake Ontario. Just in time (about 2 wks) before haulout, discovered a wonderful classic O'day Tempest nearby, checked her out, and took the plunge! Now counting down the days till launch (april 18/19)!
The plan for this season is to spend many evening and weekends sailing in circles around this area. Perhaps even short little overnight trips toward Niagra. More immediate plans of course are centred around bottom paint, brightwork, updating the systems and so on.
I hope to be able to draw on the collective knowledge base here when needed and perhaps even add to it once in a while.
BTW, this is the first internet forumn that I have joined and beg everyones patience as I learn the protocols in place here.
