Most of the time we row slowly, sing softly,
and work to create an atmosphere of calm serenity for our passengers.
But for two days each year – we row fast, yell loudly (sometimes in Italian),
and create, well, pretty much the opposite of calm serenity.
There are no passengers.
In fact we pull the seats out entirely in order to lighten the boats.
It's jolly madness, and we love it!
Come row, or watch, as we compete head-to-head for national titles
in several different categories
at the US Gondola Nationals in Huntington Harbour, CA.
