Eric Sunstrum

Eric Sunstrum and his wife Cynthia make their home near Ottawa, Ontario, and have enjoyed over 20 years sailing in the Thousand Islands and Bay of Quinte. Active members of the GLCC, they most recently coordinated the 2019 GLCC Lake Ontario Rally and the 2019 Georgian Bay Rally. They keep their Catalina 28 sailboat named Northern Whisper at the Trident Yacht Club in the Thousand Islands.

Having joined the GLCCSchool Faculty in 2016, Eric brings his years of Thousand Island, Bay of Qhinte, and Lake Ontario cruising experiences to the school's extensive set of regional cruising webinars. His home port of Ivy Lea, Ontario, lies on the Canadian shores of the beautiful Thousand Islands cruising area, and also relatively close to the scenic Bay of Quinte in Eastern Lake Ontario with its associated access to the Trent Severn Waterway. Eric is GLCC Rear Commodore for Lake Ontario and Connecting Waterways and he shares Port Captain responsibilities for the Thousand Island Area with his wife Cynthia.
