Rene Seindal of Venice Kayak is a frequent Gondola Blog reader and commentor. He's usually on his kayak, and offers some great views from a different perspective. It turns out Rene also knows how to row in the voga alla Veneta style, and quite well.
Congratulations are in order because Rene was the bow-man on the winning boat in Diadora's end-of-season regata.

Nice going Rene, nice going.
