The GSVVM's Newest Gondola

The grounds of the Gruppo Sportivo Voga Veneta in Mestre can be quite active on some days, especially just before Vogalonga.

Boats come and go through the campo, each getting her forcole fitted on the way out, and a washdown upon return.

With all these boats wearing orange and blue, sometimes it just becomes a blur.

One day, after I'd come in from my own row, I noticed this beauty rolling in for a wash, and had to grab a few photos.

Franco Crea is responsible for bringing this beauty into existence.

Nice ferro!

Getting her washdown.

Yes, now and then I see a boat that's almost worth stealing.
Do you think they'd notice if she went missing?
