Every year at the US Gondola Nationals, we see something new.
It might be a new event, a different type of course,
or a new way to interact with the folks watching the races.
This year we saw the first ever all-female tandem team - and they were fantastic!
Sofia and Giuliana stepped aboard the pupparin today,
rowed their hearts out, and won the hearts of everybody.
You represent your servizio well, and American gondoliers in general.
