Re: Good starting boat with some speed, but forgiving while learning as well?
Go talk to someone from the Richmond Yacht Club for both suggestions and what might be available locally. Laser is still your best bet for shortening the learning curve.
Two sails, maybe you can find an old 470 or Fireball. You'll get your butt kicked for awhile, but so long as you have the right clothing for the water temps, you'll live.
