There are two types of rowing: sculling and sweep rowing. In sculling, each rower holds two oars and may be in a boat alone (a “single or 1x”), with two people (a “double or 2x”) or 4 people (a “quad” or 4x).
In sweep rowing, each rower holds one oar and may be in a boat with 2 people (a “pair” or 2-), 4 people (a “four” or 4+/-) or 8 people (an “eight” or 8+). Fours may or may not have a coxswain on board to steer and lead the crew, and eights will always have a coxswain.
