Rowing to Altino

Photos by Nereo Zane

Maybe I should classify this as a "Meanwhile, in the Veneto..." post.
We're still glowing from the 2016 US Gondola Nationals,
(and I'm still digging myself out of the pile of photos and video).
Meanwhile, they're over there, routinely living the voga-alla-Veneta dream.
Here are a trio of photos sent to me by Nereo Zane.
They were taken during a trip to Altino.

Every time I see photos of these people,
in their orange and blue jerseys and white pants,
I get all nostalgic.  I was never all that loyal to my high school
or my university, but membership in the GSVVM rowing club is different.
The Gruppo Sportivo Voga Veneta in Mestre is my true alma mater.
