GLCC Sponsors Kayak World Record Attempt

M Light - October 18, 2017

10/18/17 Update: Traci stopped in Port Huron, Mich. (D-1) this past Sunday after circumnavigating the three largest lakes in North America in the same calendar year. She is the first to hold this accomplishment and has kayaked 3,064 miles on her 8600 mile journey. Check out this Find Me Spot link. Kayak racer Traci Lynn Martin will be spending the year 2017 kayaking 8600 miles to break the existing world record for the most miles travelled by kayak in a year. Her route will include the circumferences of each of the Great Lakes. The GLCC has given her a sponsored membership for the year so that she and her support team can use our Harbor Reports, call upon our Port Captains, and be recognized by our cruising members as she cruises more of the Great Lakes than most of us can even dream of. You can learn about her adventure on her website and follow her progress on the kayak racing website  where a page dedicated to her adventure will indicate her latest location. You may also follow her on Instagram at Justaroundthepointe; Facebook as Traci Lynn Martin, and twitter @StellarTourD4ce.

Port Captain Introductions: Lynn Dupuy

Cindy - October 5, 2017

Let's welcome Lynn Dupuy with a hearty "ahoy!"  He is our newly appointed Port Captain for East Harbor, Ohio (E-167). Here's what he says about his boating experiences: I have been around boats and water as long as I can remember. I began by running around with my cousins in the swamps of Louisiana in a 10-foot johnboat. In high school I taught swimming, diving and canoeing classes for the YMCA. Fortunately, I married someone who enjoys boating as much as I do. Our first boat after we got married was a homemade dinghy that accommodated one person comfortably and two people uncomfortably.

We're very happy to welcome newly appointed Port Huron, Mich. (D-1) Port Captains Dale and Teena Lashbrook. Their love for boating began on their 20-foot Carver Son of a Sailor. In addition to cruising in the “Blue Water Area,” basically Lake St. Clair and Lake Huron, they trailered their Carver to places in Michigan such as the Les Cheneaux Island, Inland Waterway, and Traverse Bay.
