Vogalonga 2023 Weekend Package

The Vogalonga 2023 is a 30km paddling/rowing race through the city of Venice and the lagoon up to Burano. Almost all rowed or paddled boats can participate, and there’s even a separate category for kayaks. There are usually well over one thousands boats in the race, of many types.

All participants are issued a diploma of participation. The Vogalonga 2023 is not a competitive race and there are no winners. It’s all about being there.

In 2023 the Vogalonga will most likely be held on Sunday May 28th.

Vogalonga 2023 Registrations

Registration for the event has to be done on the organisation’s website. Registrations should open in March or April. We recommend that you register as soon as possible. We will send out a reminder when the registration opens.

The registration fee can be paid online with most credit cards.  The fee will be announced on the official Vogalonga website when registrations open, which usually happens around 4-8 weeks before the event.

We can take care of picking up bibs, t-shirts, and posters at the organiser’s office before the weekend. All you need to do is forward your registration email to us once you’ve registered and paid the registration fee.

It is possible to do the race on Sunday without registering, but then you won’t get the poster, t-shirt, diploma, and medal.


Venice Kayak offers a two-day package

With a guided History tour in the lagoon on Saturday, May 27th, and participation in the Vogalonga 2023 on Sunday, May 28th.

Saturday 27 May 2023

The guided tour on Saturday is a unique and surprising way to discover another Venice most visitors never see. There will be guided visits on the Lazzaretto Novo Island: a historical-archaeological itinerary inside the walls and a nature walk outside along the sandbanks. The price of the visits is included.

Meeting time is at 10am on the Certosa Island, in the bar at the Certosa hotel, departure around 11am, and return between 5pm and 4pm. The lunch will take place on the island of S.Erasmo in a pleasant self-service restaurant called “Al Bacan”, which has a large terrace overlooking a small beach and the lagoon towards Venice. It is a very relaxed paddle with a good lunch break, so everybody’s still fit for the main event the next day.

Sunday 28 May 2023

The Vogalonga 2023 on Sunday starts at 9am, departure from the Certosa Island at 8pm the latest. Meeting time at the bar of the Certosa Hotel at 7am. You can do the race in a group with a Venice Kayak guide, or separately if you prefer. The guide will do the Vogalonga 2023 at a pace that will finish just within the time limit. Those who want to go faster, must do so on their own. There are people on the Certosa Island to greet you when you return, and to take care of the equipment, so you’ll be free to head for the shower and/or the bar immediately.
