The Trac 16 is a solid and fun boat; I have sailed on a friend's about that age. I like it better than the Hobie 16s, for certain.
Though I love cats, I'm not sure it's a good boat for a 10 year old to learn on, though you would have fun together. IF she was 15 I would say go for it. I agree with other posters that the best boat for kids to learn on is one they can flip back up easily, and that is not a beach cat.
But buy it anyway!
