After dinner and socializing, announcements were made.
As is often the case, a couple of Tim's gondoliers were inducted into the Order of the Marinere - gondoliers who have reached a level of ability that they are worthy of wearing the traditional white overshirt known as a "marinera".
Tim begins his announcement.
Toasting is an important component, of course.
"Ricardo di Montagna" is presented with a crisp white marinera.
It fits well, and the new inductee raises a toast with Tim and Stefano.
Nico is the next one to be tapped in.
All smiles as the shirt goes on.
New and previous members raise a toast.
