     Steve Reinecke is our newly appointed Port Captain for Bad River, Ont. (GB-46). He lives in Strathroy, Ont., and is married to a wonderful woman for the past 30 years. He has 2 great children, Trevor, 22 and Emily, 26. Steve is a Clinical Scientist and currently works for a company out of Houston, Tex., in the Disinfection and Healthcare IT Industry. He travels extensively for work.

     Steve has been a GLCC member for 12 years and has served as an Assistant Port Captain, Port Captain, Board Member and Rear Commodore. He has also previously chaired the Admissions/Membership Committee. In 2019 Steve traded in his Mainship Pilot 45 which he owned for 8 years and purchased a Great Harbour GH47 with the idea of eventually living on-board. He brought the boat up from Florida in the fall of 2019. It was the second time he had done such a trip and hopefully the last. He previously boated out of Port Elgin but moved over to Wiarton in 2015. For 2020 they will be boating out of BridgeView Marina in Sarnia.

     Bad River is Steves favourite anchorage of all in the Great Lakes. He tries to get to the anchorage at least twice a year and has explored the entire area extensively. Please congratulate and give him a holler when you plan your visit!
