Propel Your Boat By Use Of An Oar Fixed In An Oarlock Gently Down The Stream

"A picture caption with the Frequent Flier column on the Itineraries page on Tuesday, about Yael Cohen, who founded and operates a cancer education group, described incorrectly the activity she was engaging in. Ms. Cohen, shown in a canoe on a river in Botswana, was paddling — not rowing. (Rowing more precisely describes propelling a boat by use of an oar fixed in an oarlock.)"

As a kayaker, rafter, and grammar nazi, I truly appreciate this correction. If, however, we want to get really serious about definitions then other means of attaching oars to boats should be included, i.e. the contentious pins and clips.
