Nereo Zane has been shooting photos all over the Veneto.
He was there for Regata Storica - and here's a great gallery of photos from that.

Nereo also captured some great images of a traditional sailing regata, showing some of those painted sails that, in my opinion, haven't gotten nearly as much publicity as they should.

And then there were the interclub races of women and children, making for some terrific views into what real Venetian rowing looks like.
These are the types of races where future champions begin rowing.

It must be great to live so close to all that rowing and boating.
