Venetian-style rowing is a very peculiar rowing technique, typical for Venice, allowing one oarsman to move the entire boat without a helm and standing on his feet. It is said that the standing position is due to the fact that the oarsmen had to look at the sea while rowing due to very shallow waters. Venetian rowing dates back to the 5th century when the first inhabitants settled in the lagoon, whose waters were as shallow then as they are today.
