As sea monsters of Greek mythology the “Tre
Pali”, named Ada 2, Ada 3 and Ada 4, emerge from the waters in the stretch
of sea at the limit of 12 miles from the coast of Chioggia.
These are three metal single-platform of the Campo Ada
owned by Eni S.p.A. having the following geographical coordinates (Datum WGS
Ada 2 Lat. 45 ° 10 ’58.320” N Long. 012 ° 35 ’29.650”
Ada 3 Lat. 45 ° 10 ’57.400” N Long. 012 ° 35 ’29.200”
Ada 4 Lat. 45 ° 10 ’57.981” N Long. 012 ° 35 ’28.355”
Getting too close to these structures it’s a risk… because
an Ordinance of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport of the Port of
Chioggia prohibits anchoring, fishing and underwater activities within a radius
of five hundred meters from them and obliges everyone the units to stay at a
distance not less than one hundred meters.
The Easter holidays of 2019 were for the family the opportunity to put in the water the rubber dinghy and immerse us in the South Lagoon of Venice. About 18 hours in three days of vacation took us, between canals, Sandbanks and “Casoni”, to visit the city of Chioggia, the littoral of Pellestrina and to sail between the fishing valleys of the South Lagoon until to reach the Casone Millecampi and the Casone Zappa.
The Casoni of Pellestrina
The “Casoni” of Pellestrina are used by fishermen as a warehouse for nets and fishing gear
Dame, Mede and Briccole … sweet and safe traveling companions during a navigation in the Venice lagoon
The Dame is generally made up of a group of poles, one of which is in the highest center and marks the mouth of the navigable canal, while Mede and Briccole, consisting respectively of a single pole or two or more poles, delimit the continuation of the canal. On the poles signals are applied which can be white, green or red. The white signal indicates the side of the channel, the green signal that you have to proceed in navigation keeping the pole on our right, the red signal that you have to navigate keeping the pole on the left. Fair winds. Maurizio
