On going costs of leaning to sail

Hi,

So I'm currently living in Montreal and I fancy learning to sail properly. I used to sailing when I was wee, lived on the west coast of Scotland most of my life, maybe the crap weather there made it less appealing but I was never really into it.

So I want to have another shot at it. I understand I should start with a CYA Basic Cruising Course and I've got the costs for that, but what happens next? I'm not in a position to buy my own boat at the moment and I won't be in the country indefinitely. Once I have my qualification do I need to rent a boat every time I want to sail and get some practise? Or are there other alternatives such as sailing with boat owners? I really just want to get an idea of the on going costs of regular sailing before I commit to doing the course.

Cheers
