How can i find a very small sailboat used?

I want to get a very small sailboat to learn on but I am having trouble finding one. The only ones I can find in my area are two 15 year old Barnetts. They are in my price range (<$1500) but are they any good for learning on and then keeping? I want something at least a little quick so I don't get tired of it in a short time. Here is one of the boats:

Barnett 1400

What do you think of this boat? How fast (roughly) would it go in a good stiff breeze?
