You'd be very welcome at Draycote with a Dart 15. Time for a plug!
 I sail there with one, as well as a Unicorn cat and a Phantom dinghy. We have 20+ catamarans mostly Dart 15's as they suit our 650 acres and round the cans club racing well. We race in the general handicap fleet and do OK if the breeze is up. 
However we nominally allow any cats up to 18 feet, single trapeze and PY greater than 800, although that is flexible as Shadow/Shadow X is also allowed. Bigger and faster cats, Tornado, Hurricane, Formula 18 etc are deliberately excluded as it is felt they are too much for our water.
At the moment, coming out of lockdown, we are casual sailing / informal racing only. However we continue to accept new members. Drop me a PM if you want to come and have a look.

Often it's not cat speed, its the inability to turn corners. I can see why a small lake wouldn't want cats, but I'd expect people to be nice about it.
