Scull Rowing

Sculling is a form of rowing, a competitive sport in which a person uses oars, one in each hand, to propel a boat. It is a kind of rowing boat that is long and narrow. It usually has a fin on the front part to avoid rolling and yawing.

The number of rowers on a scull boat can range from one (single scull) up to eight (octuple scull).

The scull boats can be made of wood or carbon-fiber reinforced material, which is more popular nowadays. This sport is also recognized by the International Rowing Federation and Olympics.
