The Vogalonga and its story

There are three days left before one of the most awaited events of the year, the Vogalonga of Venice. Let’s know its story!

The Vogalonga is a non-competitive regatta of rowing boats that takes place in the period between May and June. It all starts in 1974: during a friendly regatta the idea of organizing and instituting and official and non-competitive regatta was born in order to reintroduce the ancient tradition of Venice. The year after the Vogalonga was born: it is a 30km long route that stops by the most important places of the lagoon city. The first edition had 1500 competitors. At the finish line, the contestants get a medals and a certificate of participation.
