Venetian Rowing

Venetian Rowing is an ancient Venetian rowing technique in which rowers stand as they row forward. This technique is suited to different types of boat, among which the Carolina – a Venetian boat with a flat bottom and a bow and stern that are elongated upwards and exactly equal, and which is best suited for beginners. 

Venetian Rowing courses are open to Ca’ Foscari students and personnel, both at a beginner and more experienced level.

Courses are held in spring (March and April) in Sacca San Biagio, Sacca Fisola. Lessons can also be held in other Venetian locations, depending on the number of participants, and in autumn (September and October). 

Venetian Rowing activities include excursions around the lagoon and nearby islands
