Default Boat/sail rig recommendations for high winds?

I just moved to St. John's Newfoundland, Canada-the windiest city in Canada. There is also no shortage of ponds to sail on! Being an avid model boater with so much water around, I am looking for advice on boats and designs suitable for the high sustained winds here. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
