Day sailing in northern IL?

Yes, one visit to the Chain of Lakes was enough for me, but there appear to be many smaller lakes in that general area. My impression is that in Chicago and northern Illinois, there are many small lakes full of drunken powerboaters, private marinas for people with larger boats, and plenty of places to put a fishing boat in the water, but I''ve had difficulty finding a place to launch a small sailboat within an hour or so of where I live (40 miles west of Chicago). I keep hoping to discover a lake to sail at that doesn''t require a two-hour drive to Wisconsin.
