AP Zeroes in on Saugatuck Rower Rickey Visinski

The Associated Press zeroes in on Westport’s Saugatuck Rowing Club and the Olympic hopes of Rickey Visinski.

Excerpt: “What a sight. A 6-foot-1-inch Rickey Visinski emerges from Westport’s Saugatuck Rowing Club carrying his metallic orange scull with the name ‘Sunburst’ overhead.

“His long, lean body moves methodically; his arms flexed as the seat of the upside down boat rests on his head.

“‘That’s why I wear a hat,’ he says, and continues down the slight path to the Saugatuck River like the letter ‘T’ in motion.

“This routine takes place twice daily as Visinski, a 2003 Fairfield Prep graduate, prepares for his greatest challenge.

“By winning each of the three U.S. National Team junior trials in Princeton, N.J., Visinski, a lightweight rower, qualified for the first time to compete in August at the World Junior Rowing Championships in Athens, Greece, site of the 2004 Olympics.”
