Tonight is the night of the Redentore feast here in Venice. We’ll take the bus to the city, where we’ll meet my friend Marco and some of his friends on a sail boat to watch the fireworks.
We’ve never seen the Redentore feast before, so its probably going to be quite interesting. It is one of the really big annual celebrations here in Venice.
There’s little chance of ever witnessing this feast from a kayak, as the boat traffic in the area is intense and highly regulated. Tradition dictates that you take part in the feast in a boat if at all possible.
Tomorrow afternoon the Redentore regatta is held, but I’m not sure we’ll be here for that. We will probably be on our way to Elba then.
