It's awful. It's tiring - exhausting actually. It's hard - one of the hardest things you will ever attempt to do. It's mind numbing -there's so many things you have to think about. It's painful - have you seen a sculler's hands?? Well, you don't want to hold them. Bleh. It's scary - seriousley the thought of falling in to a river full of currents, rats and who knows what would scare the s*** out of any 13yr old child!!!! But for some reason, thousands of people do it across the UK. Some people question the appeal but well, no Sculler or Rowing can explain why the stick with it. I guess you could say, after sculling 10km, you feel pretty damn good! :D !! It's like Rowing but instead of each crew member holding one blade/oar, each 'Sculler' holds two. People say Rowing is harder but once you've learned to 'Scull', you can easily convert to Rowing but if you learnt to Row first, it's like starting from scratch to begin Sculling. Also in sculling, you can have one person in a boat but you can't in rowing for obvious reasons like you'd just go round in a circle!!
Person 1 "heyy, I'm going Rowing today!"
Person 2 "Rowing? That's a sport for pussys! I'm a real man. I go sculling."
Person 1 (silence)
Person 2 "That's what I thought, dude!"

A rower who uses two oars at the same time, one in each hand; this allows smaller boats to be rowed sculling, than sweep rowing. A pair being the smallest sweep boat with two people each with one oar. A single being the smallest sculling boat, with one person but two oars

To avoid confusion sweep and scull boats are named differently, a four man sweep boat is called simply "four", while a four man sculling boat is called " Quadruple scull" or just "quad"

The abbreviation for sculling boats is the number of rowers in the boat followed by an "x" to denote a scull then a "+" or "-" to denote coxed boats to coxless boats
Coxed Quadruple scull is "4x+"
Coxless Quadruple scull is "4x-"
