Sculling

4x 200
Quadruple scull, or "4x". Four rowers, two oars each.

2x 200
Double scull, or "2x". Two rowers, two oars each.

Sculling is the act of rowing with two oars. MRRA offers two 6-week Learn to Scull programs targeted at those new to the sport or those with some sweep experience looking to move to sculling boats. Participants are able to graduate from multi-seat boats ("quads" and "doubles") to stable "singles" and eventually finer single shells. At the end of the program, participants may take the "Boat Captain's Test" which allows them to use club equipment for independent rowing. Many participants continue on to MRRA membership at a reduced rate for the remainder of the rowing season.

A safety launch is provided at all times boats are on the water. A high rate of attendance is expected of all participants.
