Here is the class website for the M16: M16 Scow Sailing Association
Check out their section on 'sailing hints'.
You could find a less challenging beginner boat to start with but I think it would make a good starter boat. It is a pretty fast hull, which should be fun if you can master it.

I was going to recommend something like a Snipe which is 15' 6" but the M16 will likely be less expensive.
