Re: engine-less

Sculling oar can do marvels once you master it, but you won't get much speed out of it. Pair of sweeps are easier to handle, but are less useful in close quarters, as Jeff points out above.
Have a look here: A Pearson Ariel Page. The Oar Club guy is known as http://www.amazon.com/Wind-Tide-Introduction-Cruising-Sailing/dp/0595217338/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1335913827&sr=8-2. Quite opinionated reading, but fun and informative.
