From deep in the "what the heck happened here?" territory, Nereo Zane sends us this image of a swamped mascareta. It's an official Commune di Venezia racing vessel, and another one is entering the frame in the foreground. The presence of Commune boats tells us that this took place during a regata, and I'm guessing that whatever caused the swamping, took place during competition. Unfortunately, we don't really know what lead to this situation, but I'm sure that you, my readers can come up with some logical and amusing possibilities.
