Post Bigger than a Sunfish

Hello! This is my first post here so I will keep it short in the event it's in the wrong forum. I am 52, 130-140 lbs, 5'5" and learned to sail rather well on Lake Arthur in western Pennsylvania using a Sunfish.

I may get the Sunfish back for next summer (It's in Gainesville, Ga right now), and would like to sail locally on Shenango River Lake.
This lake allows for speed boats and water skiing so I am concerned about handling the swells with a Sunfish.

I was thinking of getting something larger with a jib, like a Flying Scot. Any suggestions?
