essential to IslesborO
Learning to sail at Big Tree Boating develops independence, self-confidence and teamwork skills. BTB not only teaches youth sailors of Islesboro hands-on skills that they can utilize in maritime careers, it also encourages a life-long sense of courageousness and confidence that is essential in any field. It’s easy to see how the skills learned on the dock to become a level-headed skipper, able to make split-second decisions, can be translated to a lobster boat, the captain’s helm, or a board room.
Our mission to teach a lifelong love of sailing depends on the generosity of our donors and volunteers. The intentionally low-cost of a BTB membership only covers a portion of our operating costs. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to help us reach our annual funding goals.
If you have questions about making a donation to BTB, please email our treasurer, Merry Alderman at [email protected].
