catamaran is way to go
I think that sailing catamaran is some sort of genetic disorder. However if you feel strong urge to get two hulled boat, don’t suppress it. Catamarans are fun. Hobie Wave is entry level catamaran. It can be boring, stable and predictable; however it is as fast as Laser. Or get yourself Mystere 4.3 . The boat is popular in your region and it is built in Canada. It has all goodies. It can be sailed solo with mainsail only, or as sloop, or, for learning some exciting stuff, with gennaker. Boat is small enough to be not much intimidating for novice crew.
