Sailing lessons on Superior?

I've been looking for lessons that would allow my wife and I to go bareboating.
I found Sleeping Giant sailing school out of Thunder Bay Ontario which is about a 10 hour drive from us. It looks to be the best suited to our needs, but was wondering if anyone had knowledge of them or another school on the west side of Lake Superior that is comparable/better? There's a small sailing club at Ninette, Manitoba which is only 1 1/2 hours away and does provide sailing lessons, but it's in a small, very narrow prairie lake and I'd like to learn on larger water if I plan to sail on larger water.
Thanks

Sailormann will become famous soon enough
Start on the smaller lake. Next year take lessons on the bigger lake. Sailing is fun regardless of where you are doing it. Good Luck

For the first time you can take a lesson on a small lake, but the real fun is not on lakes
