A week in Venice (day 4): Vogalonga


Never posted. Bought in Venice in the May of 1980.

Venezia
Bacino S. Marco - Partenza della Vogalonga
Bassin de S. Marco - Le départ de la "Vogalonga"
S. Marco Basin - The leaving of "Vogalonga"
S. Markusdock - Abfahrt von der "Vogalonga"

The Vogalonga is a non-competitive rowing regatta held as shown, in front of the Doge's Palace. Any type of rowing boat can take part. It started in 1974. Apparently some people choose to swim the 30 km route instead of rowing. Much as I love Venice, I couldn't even contemplate doing that.
