Rowers take part in Venice's Vogalonga regatta

STORY: More than 1,700 boats set off from St Mark's Basin to take part in the spectacular regatta, which attracts enthusiasts from all over the world every year.

After a virtual edition in 2020 and a reduced one in 2021 due to the pandemic, some 7,000 rowers, both professionals and amateurs, crowded the canals of Venice in the 30-km non-competitive rowing marathon, created in 1974 to raise awareness on the problem of waves afflicting the lagoon city.

Over the years, the number of boats and sailors participating in the race has steadily increased, and usually everyone can freely choose to take part in the competition with different types of rowing boats to enjoy the spirit of the historical event.
