Light vs heavy boats

I have been considering buying a T10, Pearson flyer or an Olsen. I''m not really looking for something to race but I would like something a little faster and more fun to sail than my old Catalina. Some of the people I sail with are dead set against these "light" boats and say that they won''t go to weather if there are any waves or swells because there too light. Is there any truth to this "light boats don''t go to weather" or are they just worried that I might have a faster boat than them?
