My wife and I have a Catalina 22 that we use for inland lake sailing, and I highly reccomend it. It's light enough to tow easily behind our Volvo station wagon, can be rigged for a day trip on a lake, but has enough cabin space and seaworthyness for overnighting and costal cruising.
Also, you can find them everywhere for very cheap, and they have a good racing community in certain places (depends on where you are).
Overall though, look on Craigslist to see what you can find a good deal on! There's no reason to be set on a certain model. I was looking for any small sailboat, and the C22 is what I happened to find cheaply- but now that I know more about it I think I couldn't have made a better choice!
