Welcome to the Meeting Room of the Venture Newport sailors! This is the original and first Venture Newport Internet site established June 21, 1998. The single point web URL for all of this VN information, VN photographs, skipper's logs, and maps about Venture Newports, as well as this discussion area.
Check the Files section for the original Venture of Newport 23 sales brochure as well as other articles of interest.
(Re; Geocities; Geocities clossed down.)
These discussions are for folks interested in sharing information and experiences with Venture Newport sailboats. This list is no longer moderated. Please be sure to practice proper 'netiquette'. Please keep in mind...
1. When responding to a discussion thread, please check the Subject line before you click 'Submit' to make sure that what you are saying really is on that subject. Change/Edit the Subject line to keep it clear as to what your text is talking about. (This makes it easier for folks looking for info in the group's archived listings.)
2. Keep in mind that everyone makes mistakes. If someone says something that sounds stupid to you, don't come down on them for doing so. Show the same respect that you would if we were all meeting in person, face to face. Don't hide behind Internet anonymity.
Within this Yahoo Groups site some members are uploading photos and other info that you can access. On the left, click the Files (if you are a Member) then click on one of the folders which are usually named after the boat.
I hope you find this information and these discussions about the most beautiful trailerable sailboat helpful! Smooth Sailing!!
