Lauren Blake Crandall

With 20+ years of rowing experience, Lauren has medaled in some of the most prestigious regattas in the U.S. and Canada, including the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta, USRowing Masters Nationals, Canadian Masters Nationals, Schuykill Navy Day, and the FISA World Rowing Masters Regatta. She holds her Level 2 USRowing Coaching Certification, and has coached high school rowing, adult learn-to-row, and indoor rowing classes--sharing her love of the sport with aspiring rowers of all ages.

She rows out of Minneapolis Rowing Club, where according to her dad she only gets to row July 3-5th before the water freezes. She lives with her husband, daughter, cat, and St. Bernard, all of whom are decidedly non-rowers (but they have other great qualities).
