Everything is ready - Venice Dragon Boat Festival and Vogalonga 2022

Comunicato del 31 maggio 2022

 

Everything is ready for the 8th edition of the Venice International Dragon Boat Festival

 

Saturday 4 June 2022, at the Sports Centre of Sant’Alvise, Venice,
with 16 crews registered from 7 Nations.

 

It may be the desire to return to rowing, or the great desire to be in Venice and Italy, the fact is that the 8th edition of the Venice International Dragon Boat Festival has 16 registered crews, 14 of which are from abroad.

 

Taking advantage of combining the "Festival together with the Vogalonga", 1 Czech, 1 German, 2 Italian, 2 American, 2 Arab, 4 French and 4 English crews will compete in the waters of the city that gave birth to Marco Polo, whose journey along the "Silk Road" has been symbolically replicated by the Dragon Boats, ancient boats of Chinese origin now widespread in Italy and throughout the world, thanks to the versatility that allows these boats to accommodate even very different people for fun and sport.

 

The "Venice International Dragon Boat Festival" was born in 2012, and did not stop even during the pandemic, taking place both in 2020 and in 2021.  The 2022 edition of the Festival will be organised according to the current Covid-19 anti-contagion regulations.

 

The Festival is on Saturday 4th June and is followed by the famous Vogalonga on Sunday 5th June, with participation of the Breast Cancer Survivors, DB athletes and fun-loving amateurs.

 

The program begins with the heats taking part late morning followed by more racing and the Finals in the afternoon.

 

The Festival is a unique moment of sport and folklore, and brings together crews enthusiastic about experiencing Venice and the lagoon from this unique perspective. The Festival is a part of the more sustainable tourism trend that Venice so strongly needs.
