Adult Dinghy Beginner

Hey all

Im looking to get into dinghy sailing on lake whatcom and maybe in our bay in Bellingham WA. I have experience windsurfing, i think i can self teach how to sail a small dinghy.

Would a laser perfomance bug be too small for a 5'10" 175 Lb guy who is just learning and not looking to race? If not any other suggestions? I like the simplicity of a boat like this and a new one is in my price range. I dont really like the board style laser/sunfish; i would like a little clearance from the cold water in the NW.

Also looking at the topaz taz.

Any advice for a newb to the sport appreciated.
