Venice, 18th-20th May 2018

Rowing4fun brings you at Vogalonga!


"Vogalonga" is a non-competitive regatta, which annually takes place in Venice. It starts from Canal Grande, in front of San Marco, and then goes on for about 33 km to reach the islands of the lagoon, such as Burano and Murano, to finally arrive back at Canal Grande.

It is not a race, nor a competition. Participants from all over the world congregate in Venice to take part in what is called a true "row party": it is not the winning, but the taking part that counts!

On the occasion of the 44th Vogalonga, which will take place in Venice on Sunday 20th May 2018, Rowing4fun offers a three-days and two-nights stay solution in Venice, plus participation in the Vogalonga.

We have two Gig with 4 wheelhouses, which will be docked at the rowing club "Canottieri Diadora al Lido".

Every crew will consist of 5 rowers, and alternately everyone will take control of the wheelhouse.

If you're interested, there's the chance of rowing in a relaxed way on the lagoon on Friday evening, to visit the little islands of Malamocco and Poveglia, to get ready before the vogata on Sunday.
