The Canottieri Treporti

I shot this at the 2005 Regata Storica. I was looking across the Grand Canal and saw a gondola da regatta and caorlina in bright yellow and white. I'd never heard of the Canottieri Treporti, so I did some research and found out that they occupy the barrier land at the top of the Venetian lagoon.

Take a look at the Google Earth map compliments of Nereo Zane.

It turns out that one of our 2007 Hudson River Expedition members, Enzo Lizska comes from the area.

I found the website and was very impressed with their photo gallery. Someone over there does a good job photographing a regatta.

Take a look at the gallery for yourself: http://www.palioremiero.it/2007/fotogallery.html
