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 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 2015 GLCC Lake Ontario Rally. Ivy Lea Ontario is home port to their Catalina 28 Northern Whisper.
