Bianca spotted some scullers on the Charles as storm clouds moved in and the NWS issued a severe-thunderstorm watch.
Those are sweep rowers! Each has only one blade, vs. scullers who have two.
(Don't worry, it's a common mistake that nobody except rowing people will care about.)
Scullers are rowers who use one oar in each hand - two oars per rower. Sweep rowing is when each rower in a shell uses only one larger oar with both hands.
HA! I knew the first two comments would appear on this post. =)
