Hi, new to sailing just bought a boat... (Chicago Burbs)

Hey guys, I'm in the west burbs of Chicago. I've been interested in learning to sail for a while now. Just got back from a vacation to Mexico where I rented a hobiecat and I was hooked after that.

I had been eyeing a home built boat on craigslist for a few weeks and decided to pull the trigger. It's a home built wood boat Arch Davis Sand Dollar.

Just wanted to say hello to everyone. Also, if anyone else is in the area looking for some help finding some smaller nearby lakes to sail on. So far I've founde Busse Lake in Schaumburb and Shabbona in Dekalb. I saw a small lake in Bolingbrook but sailboats not allowed. Looking for some smaller park district lakes near the Aurora, Naperville, Lisle area if anyone has any suggestions.

Look forward to learning a bunch from this forum.
