A brand new, self-righting keel version of the successful RS Venture. This boat combines comfort and sailing ability, and a price lower than other comparable small keelboats. It is a great choice for training fleets and families alike.

A heavy duty fiberglass construction is utilized to keep sailing weight down, but still provide durability and performance. The 264 lb keel provides exceptional stability and the deck can be fitted with the RS Sailing Sailability Pack - see below for details.
