Training (Seemingly In the Style of Veronese), This Evening
With the Regata Storica just five days away (Sunday, Sept 6), training sessions for those competing-- such as the crew of six in the caorlina above--have become even more serious than usual. Our 12-year-old son has competed in other regate before, but this year will be his first time in the Regata Storica, in the two person junior division race, in which he will row in the position of poppiere (the rower at the stern).
After a stormy day of rain yesterday today's sky was very blue and mostly clear, except for some dramatic heaps of clouds to the west and north: combined with the colors of the crew and their boat-- intensified by the lowering sun--the scene above looked something like a contemporary scene rendered in the style of Veronese.
