The historical Regata is also held during the celebrations of St Ranieri, on 17th June, in the afternoon. It‘s a boat race that is run upstream on the Arno, along a 1,500 meters route from Ponte Solferino almost up to Ponte alla Fortezza. The sixteenth century boats are decorated with different colours that represent the various city quarters: Santa Maria (light blue), San Francesco (yellow), San Martino (red), Sant‘Antonio (green). The winner is the boat that manages to take possession of the victory banner at the top of the mast on the arrival pontoon.
