RS Sailing
RS Venture

The RS Venture is a collective dinghy, designed for sailing schools and leisure. Quite large she can accommodate up to 8 people thanks to a cockpit designed to maximize space: using a push-down or, rarer, a mainsheet on arch. Her width also allows her a good stability reassuring for beginners. This stability also allows her to remain at mooring.

Many options are available to adapt her perfectly to the chosen program: trapeze, weighted centerboard, storage box, motor bracket, swimming ladder and the choice for the spinnaker between asymmetrical or symmetrical, smaller.

A Keel version is also available with a 100kg appendage that even brings more stability.
