Can't remember name of Boat, help needed

Okay, my first post...

I am coming back to sailing after a ten year break.
(I took a break to travel by motorcycle, married now with one year old and I want to get my family on the water).

Okay, here's where you guys come in.
Two years ago I was in Vancouver at the Granville Island marina and I spotted a sweet 18 to 22 foot boat, rigged for racing. It was exactly what I wanted for speed, and for fun. The only thing is, I can't remember what the heck it was. (I played a lot of hockey as a kid, and I guess I had one too many pucks to the head).

I want to find out what boat it was so my search can begin.

It was either made by C+C, or Catalina... I am sure it wasn't a catalina since I am pretty familiar with their lineup.
I am 90% certain it was a C+C.
It had a lot of racing hardware on it, with an open transom. It had a no frills cabin with lots of room for hardware.
It looked like a scaled down america's cup/vende globe type of boat.
It was close to 18 feet...
It's a long shot...
but anyone have any ideas?

You sure is was a C&C? They are not known for making fast racing boats....no offense to C&C owners. There are so many open transom race boats in that category that it would be hard to even guess. I just Googled "small sailboats" and came across a bunch of websites with lots of different designs. Perhaps you will come across a boat of similar design that you like better?

I could be wrong...
I really don't know if it really was a C+C...
it was about 18 feet

Colegate perhaps?

Sounds like one, made by Precision boat works, name starts with a "C"
