In adverse weather conditions the Organizing Committee affirm that certificates of attendance will be awarded to all crews including those who run into trouble and so may decide to complete a shorter course. Throughout the Vogalonga a restrictive order banning the circulation of water traffic will be implemented and assistance will be offered along the prescribed course of the event.

Canale di Cannaregioroberta2020-01-27T12:05:09+01:00
Buoys to regulate the stream of boats will be placed at the entrance to Rio di Cannaregio. Signs warning of any obstacles in the canal will also be posted there and on board a boat. We request that all crews follow the instructions of the voluntary staff managing the flow of traffic in order to prevent congestion and overcrowding.
We would also like to remind you that this is a non-competitive event.
Buoys placed ahead of Ponte dei Tre Archi will guide the crafts under the central arch of the bridge.
Allow room for rowing sculls (Yole) which may need a little more space. Participants in a punt are also requested to ensure that their crafts are furnished with suitable equipment (oars) for steering through the narrower canals.
Police boats and those offering help to vessels in need of assistance will be stationed along the course; all these vessels will be in contact via radio. You can call the Organising Committee (who are in contact with the Emergency Medical Services) on the following emergency number +39 389 6817807
