Historical Boat Race

The most important "Voga alla Veneta" event in the Regatta agenda. The glittering costume parade in typical 16th century attires, with the gondoliers carrying the Doge, the Venetian nobles and the Queen of Cyprus, Caterina Cornaro, from the San Marco Basin along the Grand Canal. Following the water pageant, four competitions are held along the same passage. Young adults, women, district teams, from the islands and coastal areas, and eventually the champions, compete against each other to win the red flag that is awarded to the winner.
