I'm guessing you will be trailering which means you will need to rig each time you launch. Stability was also a big need for me as I like to sail with my wife and we are relatively new too.

Check out American Sail. They have an American 14.6 and an 18 (centerboard monohulls). Open cockpit sloops, easy/quick to rig and built for more relaxed sailing rather than racing.

I will each everyone here in that these types of boats are going to be slow compared to cats, but they make up for it in that you can actually bring things with you easily (ie radio cooler etc).

Good luck!
