The Education Committee is charged with providing its members with information, programs and guidance to promote a safe and enjoyable boating experience.  

To achieve this goal, we focus on the following activities:
  •       Coordinate boating education programs offered by the Pamliso Sail & Power Squadron, Coast Guard or other boating organizations which may be of use for club members.
  •       Develop "in house" programs to address specific Cypress Landing boating needs.
  •       Develop and promote boating related articles and information for the membership.
