Finally Got To Sail!

Last Fall I told you all about my new purchase, a 1973 17' Venture. The boat is a BLAST! I was told it would be unstable and I should bring a wet suit...are there any other tips for safe and fun sailing with this boat? So far I haven't needed the wet suit and it seems to be very stable in around 10kt winds. First trip my friend and I were able to sail it right to the mooring.

Just thought I would give anyone who remembers an update. Already loving sailing, more pleasant and quiet than lobstering, can't wait to get a bigger boat and maybe do some travel someday.
