Dear NC members,
The 44th Vogalonga regatta - »a non-competitive recreational sporting event for amateur athletes« - will take place on 20th May 2018 along a 30km course through Venice lagoon.
A group of NC rowers have done the planning to bring 2 currachs down to Venice to participate in this years event.
We are now looking into the option to have a third currach on the trailer, with another 4 seats available to accommodate more interested active Naomhoga Chorcai members.
The event is on "Whitsunday" 20.05.18 and starts at 8:30 am at the Bacino San Marco.
We plan to have the boats in Venice at Saturday noon (unloading at Tronchetto car park) – and they'll leave Venice on Monday, 21. May.
The shared transport and registration costs are estimated to be around 400,- Euro per person, with a 250,- Euro deposit.
Flights to Venice and accommodation are up to each participant, and has to be booked individually.
The boats used for the Vogalonga won't interfere OceanToCity trainings in Cork - two weeks before the O2C.
