It depends on where you'er sailing and what kind of sailing you want to do (day sails, overnights, cruising or racing).
My first boat was a Catalina 22 that I day sailed and she was a great teacher.
The advantage of the Catalinas is there are a lot of good ones out there and a lot of owners who can give you help and advice.
Welcome and good luck,
