Re: Good starting boat with some speed, but forgiving while learning as well?
SF Bay ?
Find a Lido 14 on Craigslist. You will have a lot of fun, in the heavy air of SF Bay you'll plane easily enough to get your jollies, but you'll also stay a lot drier than with other small Boats.
Larry Ellison learned to sail on Lido 14s in SF Bay.
I've sailed on Lido's in SF. Nothing under 40' is dry in SF.
