Hi, from Southern Ontario

Hi from Guelph,Ontario,Canada.
I am a new member who last sailed in Southern England in the 70's -80's Now living in Canada since 1987 and a little older would like to take up sailing again, take some refresher lessons and buy a boat.My experience is mainly with Laser's and some crew experience on a keelboat crossing the English channel. Lake Ontario around the Hamilton ,Toronto area would be the cruising area which is the closest to my home town of Guelph. Any thoughts on where to take basic cruising lessons, boat mooring availability in this area would be appreciated. Thanks
