Good starting boat with some speed, but forgiving while learning as well?

Hi sailing folks. So I've been wanting to get a sailboat for sometime now. But, coming from an automotive background, I also want speed with a little bit of panache. I've seen some videos of Moths and 49ers on Youtube, and obviously they look like a lot of fun. I'm of course understanding that their beyond my ability now, but I don't want to go all the way back to something like a Laser, which really seems kind of docile to me. So I'm kind of looking for something in the middle I guess with two sails, that's quick, but would be forgiving while trying to learn on, but that I could also single hand. Thanks for suggestions!
