Gondola Races

Gondola races are one of those things that are better in concept than they are in real life.

When I was in Venice at the beginning of the month, I got to see the Regata Storica, which is the largest gondola race in Venice. While you would think gondola races would be pretty exciting, they were anything but. The whole program of races was running very late and there were lengthy half hour waits between races. There is little passing and those passes that do take place are very gradual.
