In the interest of "doing it right", the GSVVM chose to wait a month or so to hold the varo because the committee wanted to have it on a Sunday that didn't conflict with any other regate or other special events.
Along with the launch of this special boat, and enjoying a great feast, the club had a couple regate of their own; one for mascarete and one racing gondole.
The GSVVM has a regata-worthy fleet of mascarete (which is why the boats in the above photos are all in club colors), but I think they outsourced for the fleet of racing gondole.
Nereo has just put all of the varo photos in one post on his blog.
Check it out, leave comments!
