Cypress Landing Yacht Club gives two scholarships from the sailing school to students every year. Students are chosen based on an essay they write explaining why they want to learn how to sail.

This year the yacht club chose three students, because a record-breaking 20 students submitted essays. They decided to add a third recipient because of the large number of essays, Arlene (AJ) Orofino with Cypress Landing Yacht Club said. Orofino, Sue Zinmermann and Commodore, Skip Vail presented the scholarships to Barber, Jones and Sauls at Chocowinity Middle School’s awards ceremony on Thursday, June 2.
