Steve and Greg
Steve Corlew grew up in Grayling Michigan canoeing down the AuSable river with his family. By the time he started college Steve had established himself as a world class canoe and kayak racer. He eventually joined the US Marathon Kayak team and was able to compete for the US in Spain, Australia and Canada. Steve is also an avid canoe racer having competed in many long distance canoe races including the AuSable Canoe Marathon, The General Clinton, Ski to Sea and La Classique in Quebec. Most recently Steve moved to Harbor Springs, Michigan where he has taken up surfski paddling and quickly become addicted to the unique, addictive, and amazing thrill of catching waves all while getting a superb workout.
Steve was recently diagnosed with a rare auto-immune disorder called Sarcoidosis. He will use the Paddle Relay to raise money for this cause, and also to train for his own personal fundraiser where he hopes to break the world record for the most miles paddled in 24 hours. Check out Steve’s Blog to learn more about this exciting challenge.
Steve’ training partner, Greg Hintz will be joining to assist in the captaining responsibilities. Greg is an avid multi-sport athlete who has kayaked for many years and has been paddling surfskis for at least 5 years. Greg was a top finisher in the 2014 Great Lakes Surfski Race Series. Having lived in the Petoskey area for many years, Greg knows this section well and will be a superb guide and companion.
