This Sunday was the annual Vogalonga! Doesn't that just roll off the tongue? The Vogalonga (translated to long race) is an annual boat race around the island of Venice. The race is a non-competitive event where anyone can enter, as long as their boat is man (or woman!) powered. People from all around the world come to see the 30 km/18 mile race every year. Watching the canals we have grown to love getting filled from edge to edge with boats was definitely a sight not to miss!
