Who we are

We started out as twenty young, dynamic Venetians, bored and unable to adhere to the strict rules of our Sister club.  Our intention was to attract and inspire the hearts of likeminded young Venetians who shared our passion of rowing in our beautiful lagoon.  Our hope was to compete in the most coveted competitions whilst strengthening our bodies and ennobling our spirits.  At first no one believed in our cause, we were ridiculed and rejected.  Our first victory did finally come when we opened our hearts to Count Piero Foscari, one of the first people to believe, and have faith, in us!
