Regata Storica 2013 – pageants

The initial part of the Regata Storica is a pageant of Venetian boats.

Local rowing clubs have some really remarkable boats, like gondolas with 10, 12 or 14 oarsmen, or a peata which is a huge cargo boat used on the rivers.

Some boats are from associations that try to promote Venetian rowing like Viva Voga, or to salvage the last remaining examples of boat types that are no longer in use,  like Arzanà.

Many boats are dressed up and rowed by oarsmen in historical costumes.
