The Cinque Terre Raid


We've been working hard on a Cinque Terre for some time now...it has to be absolutely awesome but also be flexible regarding the weather because, well...it is THE SEA and not our rowing basin. It has to have plenty of travel experiences, taste experiences, sights to see and of course time to relax and simply breathe in the Mediterranean air.

And now...we're ready! May 19th to 26th we will be on the Ligurian Coast. We will be rowing coastal quads, built to handle just about any kind of waves if needed but comfortable even on flat water.

Our starting point will be Moneglia where we'll start off right: with dinner and the fantastic white wines of Liguria! Our destination: The La Spezia rowing club, Velocior, where we'll be greeted and fêted by our Spezzino friends and helpers in this adventure. Along the way we'll see all of the glorious towns of the Cinque Terre and finally Portovenere, with hotels and inns strategically placed in order to row more or less each day depending on the weather conditions.
