Erika Bartkute Lanske – from Lithuania to Vashon
October 5th, 2017 by Jeff & Cindy Hoyt
She’s the youngest Masters rower in the Vashon Island Rowing Club. Her journey from the Lithuanian national team to the University of Minnesota to Vashon is a fascinating one featuring harsh living conditions, broken promises, and a Soviet-era coach with some crazy ideas on how to be compensated for losing his rowers to American universities.
