WHY BTB?

Big Tree Boating was founded in 1996 with the mission of teaching Islesboro residents of all abilities, ages 10 and up, essential sailing skills, proper seamanship, respect for the water and a lifelong love of sailing. Big Tree Boating is committed to provided sailing classes at a low-cost to island residents.  Scholarships are available and cost should never be an obstacle to membership. 

Our mission to teach that lifelong love of sailing depends on the generosity of our donors and volunteers. Hundreds of sailors over the years have come away from a BTB experience with a feeling of joy in their hearts. Please consider a tax-deductible gift today.
