To most people that don't know rowing, they tend to think anyone who is sitting in a boat and has an oar or two in their hands is rowing.
This is NOT correct!
Rowers have only one oar in their hands. They hold onto it with both hands. They have to have an even number of people in the boat, to that the bow side of the boat has the same amount of power going in to the water as the stroke side. Assuming everyone in the boat is of equal strength and technique.
Scullers on the other hand have an oar in each hand, and it is therefore possible to 'row' the boat all by themselves as this picture here shows. In rowing parlance, this is a 'single' meaning it only has one seat!
Equipment: Boat, blades (oars), and tight fitting clothing that won't catch in the seat runners (the seat sides up and down). A drinks bottle helps too!
