Rowers are not Paddlers, and vice versa.

Paddlers paddle canoes, kayaks, rafts and dragonboats AND SIT FACING FORWARD.
Their paddles are not rigged to their boats.

Rowers a.k.a. scullers SIT FACING AFTERWARD
and their oars are rigged to their boats.

Rowing Canada / FISA

Canoe Kayak Canada / ICF

Dragonboat Canada / IDBF

are the domestic and world sport governing bodies for competitive rowing and paddling.
