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 usually complete a "Boat Captain's Test" which allows participants to comply with club requirements for independent rowing with the MRRA. Additionally most participants continue on to MRRA membership at a reduced rate for the remainder of the rowing season.

LTSCULL1 and LTSCULL2 are 6 week / 12 session programs that introduces participants to basic sculling technique, boathouse procedures and safety concerns. Participants will be guided by a head coach supported by MRRA volunteers. Equipment used will include rowing ergometers, multi-seat boats and stable Zephyr training boats. A safety launch is provided at all times boats are on the water.
