Well, if you're talking sweeping, then a pair is as small as it gets (2 people, one oar each). To get bigger, there are fours (four people, one oar each) and eights (eight people, one oar each) But it you're sculling, then you can have a single (one person, two oars), a double (two people, two oars each), or a quad (four people, two oars each).

It was Megan's first time in a sculling boat, but she enjoyed being in the quad immensly because the coxswain was so nice. :)
