why not buy a scorpion? They are a touch faster than the 200 and more suited to your weight and size. The fleet is mostly wooden but there are a few very fast fibre gass boats

If you sail at Frensham its worth considering a Lark.

Have you tried canvassing your sailing committee to see if they will allow RS400?

Worth a go - they could change the rule to allow this class only and prevent any trapeze boats.

Given your criteria, get a wayferer world, if you can find one in your budget (should be able to).  Asymetric, 24 stone is about optimum weight and handicap is under 1000 as far as i know. 

Otherwise if you can move to a club that will let you have something faster and you still want something that is not to taxing but will blow you away with performance for your budget and weight the only way to go is the B14.  24 stone is perfect and the best second hand boats on the market (win races straight off the trolley) will set you back 3000 on the nose. 

Hope this helps

Thanx everyone! Some great advice there, I think we are going to consider a different club.
