BTB 25th Anniversary

In honor of our 25th Anniversary, we have launched a year-long capital campaign to replace our aging fleet and to plan for future capital improvements. We have had our boats for almost 20 years and it is time for an upgrade. Additionally, we know that there will be floats, motors, sails and other hardware to replace in the coming years.

We have set an ambitious goal to raise $125,000 for our 25th Anniversary and we hope you can help us get there. We are making plans so that BTB will be around for another 25 years.  

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.

If you have questions about the capital campaign, please email our board member and fundraising chair, Merry Alderman at merryalderman@gmail.com
