The 45th Vogalonga regatta
a non-competitive sporting event for amateur athletes

La Vogalonga is a day of great celebration for the city’s rowing tradition; racers from all over the coast of Veneto and Friuli animate the canals of Venice and the lagoon for a journey of more than 30 km to do without the help of the motor strictly.

In recent years the Vogalonga has now become an international party capable of attracting crews from rowing boats from all over the world to the lagoon. And there are many types of boats, rigorously rowing, that parade through the city of Venice.

The departure is as always from the incredible setting of the St. Mark’s Basin right in front of Palazzo Ducale and proceeds towards Sant’Elena, going around it and leaving the Isola delle Vignole on the right. From here we proceed in the lagoon, leaving Sant’Erasmo, San Francesco del Deserto on the right, reaching Burano Island. Then to the north you enter the Mazzorbo canal to return to Venice. Along the way to Murano you will skirt the ruins of the Island of Madonna del Monte and San Giacomo in Paludo. On Murano the route winds along the Grand Canal and continues towards the Fondamente Nove where it turns to enter the Cannaregio Canal and then left into the Grand Canal. Here the procession parades beneath the Rialto Bridge and the Accademia Bridge, in front of a festive audience and in front of the marvelous palaces of the Grand Canal, to end the procession in front of Punta della Dogana.
