About the project

VAVA Inc. (The Voga Alla Veneta Assoc. of South Australia Inc.) is the first Venetian rowing club in Australia. But before we can get rowing, we need to build some boats. With some homegrown boats, we will be able to offer Australians the opportunity to row just like they do in Venice, Italy. Venetian-style rowing is an excellent whole-body form of exercise that's great for individual or social recreation and can also be done competitively. And when we have enough people trained and experienced enough here in Australia, we plan to travel to row with Venetian-style rowers in Italy, Germany, Malta, France, Holland, England and the US and ultimately host international visiting rowers here in Australia.

Through the club's fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. So please show your support by donating today!

    Good luck with building Venetian style boats. We have such fun with them in Oxford, UK.
