Although I first learned on a 26' Thunderbird I spent several summers thereafter on a 15' Venture catamaran, which I think qualifies as a dinghy -250#, human ballast, 15'LOA. Even thought it was a fast wild ride it was also a wet ride, my memories were of wearing a wet suit and always being wet. If I was on a warm lake/climate I think a Flying Scot or something similar (Bombardier 16) would be a nice choice for quick daysailing. For now I'll stick with my bigger dry ride.
