C30 is a good choice but be aware that there there are quite a few flavors of this boat.
"During the long production run of this basic model there were a great number of variations in rig size, keel configuration , etc.. "
Check here to look up all the various configurations this boat was made with.
CATALINA 30 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
If you want the fastest configuration of C30 you want the full keel with tall mast version. I'd avoid the shoal draft version with the tall mast, in fact I'd avoid the shoal draft and wing keeled versions altogether unless that option appeals to you.
