This ban will harm the activities of several groups.
The local kayaking association Arcobaleno has initiated a legal challenge to the new regulation banning kayaks and canoes in Venice.
Arcobaleno is one of the oldest kayaking clubs in the wider Venice area, and they have been active for many many years.
A Paypal account firstname.lastname@example.org has been set up to collect funds for the legal battle ahead. The needs aren’t huge, all in all around €3000 will be needed, but it is more than the club and its supporters have.
