What is the difference between sculling and sweep rowing? In sculling, each rower has two oars. Sculling is practiced most commonly in single-person boats, but can be done in boats with multiple people. In sweep rowing, each rower has only one oar, a starboard oar or a port oar. As a result, sweep boats contain rowers in even numbers, typically two, four, or eight people.
