Bragozzo - it's not competitive but it cuts a fine figure

The Bragozzo was the most commonly used fishing vessel between the 18th and 19th century, both along the coastline and out at sea. It dates much further back than that, and originally came from Chioggia (near Venice), before becoming widespread all along the coast of the Veneto region and throughout the Adriatic Sea.

Love all the color in this boat, and such beautiful weather you have now!

You'll post a picture of it in full sail one of these days? Please? :)
