6. What is special about the Saugatuck Rowing Club?

Founded by Coach James Mangan in 1990, the Saugatuck Rowing Club today is the realization of his vision, shared by Dr. Howard Winklevoss, Club Proprietor, whose twin sons learned to row at SRC under Mangan’s tutelage. A former oarsman with the Garda Siochana Rowing Club in Dublin, Ireland, Mangan came to the United States to coach crew at Fordham University for three years, all the while nurturing his dream of starting a rowing club that would make the sport more accessible to people of all ages.

On a visit to Westport, Mangan discovered an old freight station that had been moved from the old railroad stop to a property on the Saugatuck River. By an amazing bit of luck, it was the perfect shape and size to store rowing shells. After renting the site, Mangan built the special low docks needed to launch the shells and set off to recruit members for a new club, then called the Saugatuck Rowing Association. Mangan actually transported an eight to the village green, put it on slings, and told anyone passing by about the magic of rowing. Soon, the first crew, a women’s eight, was formed. They in turn recruited friends and family members and a dedicated group of rowers flourished on the Saugatuck.

Mangan, Nicoleta Mantescu, and member volunteers who joined the Club in 1995, spent the next decade building programs. Junior programs for kids from twelve to eighteen brought in new generations of rowers. Novice programs introduced rowing to men and women of every age, including senior rowers. All learned to revel in the challenge and camaraderie of rowing. The thriving club was fulfilling Mangan’s dream to insure that, at least in the Westport area, anyone who wanted to row had the opportunity.
