THE VOGALONGA 09.06.2019

The Vogalonga is a non-competitive event, It was born in 1974 as a support of the campaign against the degradation of the lagoon and its wave motion: it involved professionals and amateurs of the Venetian Vogue.

In 1975 it was officially established and became one of the most important events for Venice in which, every year, more and more boats (even non-Venetian ones) participated.

From the early hours of the morning, in the San Marco basin, in front of the Palazzo Ducale, a large number of boats of all kinds, form and origin await, waiting for the “way” to start a journey of about 30 km passing through the Burano and Murano islands, returning to Venice by crossing the Rio di Cannaregio, and then arriving in front of the Punta della Dogana.

For all those who stay along the foundations, to wait for the passage of his friends, large tables are organized on the banks of canals, in the terraces, in the roof terraces to celebrate the passage of the regatta accompanying the party with a good glass of wine and some venetian’ tapas
