VOGALONGA: 9th OF JUNE 2019
The Vogalonga is a 32 kilometers rowing regatta, it begins in the spectacular Bacino of St. Mark, moves towards the islands of the Northern Lagoon and then continue past the Palazzi of the Grand Canal. The Vogalonga is a famous regatta that began in Venice in 1974, and takes place each year on a Sunday in May when, for a few hours, the suffocating traffic of motorized boats ceases, and the water is left alone to the oars.
La Vogalonga e`la famosa festa del remo che dal 1974 si svolge a Venezia in una domenica in cui, almeno per qualche ora, il soffocante traffico acqueo causato dalle barche a motore che quotidianamente asfissia la citta`, lascia il posto alle imbarcazioni a remi.
The beauty of the lagoon passages, the enthusiasm of the rowers, and the opportunity to see, even for just one day a year, Venice as a river of thousands of boats, has transformed the Vogalonga into a splendid sporting event.
