Vogalonga Eve

A group of rowers prepares their equipment for the 30 km "long row" tomorrow. The park on Sant' Elena harbors about three dozen mostly multi-person boats tonight, as well as a dozen Hungarian rowers who are camping out. 1,600 boats are expected to take part in tomorrow's annual festival of the oar.


  1. That's going to be an interesting traffic jam!

  2. Luckily the basin of San Marco where they began is so large. But, then again, the Cannaregio Canal they must pass through as they approach the end is not! So a bunch of tired & cranky rowers nearing the end of the course should indeed be quite interesting.
