Question In Cleveland, looking to learn

Welcome Me. Great site, lots of knowledge. Thanks Sailnet.

I am 34 years old and have always loved water. Never sailed, only powerboated with friends and family. I know a little about boating but not enough to buy a sailboat and crash someone. I live almost on the Lake (Erie) and we have a Yacht Club called Edgewater Yacht Club. I called there a year ago for someone that charters sailboats to teach me and my wife to sail. I am not sure if we are even going to enjoy it, but heck, I want to use wind to move across the water. My ultimate goal is to become a member at a marina, own a boat with a decent sized galley/head and take trips sailing with my dog and wife.

Does anyone on this forum know where I can find a captin or a school with some patience to help me sail? Appreciate it!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
