A newsletter that documents the activities of a boating club for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in the San
Francisco Bay area and surrounding counties.
The Barbary Coast Boating Club is a Northern California gay and lesbian boating club for those interested in all aspects of
on-water fun. The club was established in 1982 to provide a safe environment that would foster camaraderie, fun and the enjoyment
of boating and other water activities in the company of gay men and lesbians. There are club members from all nine counties
bordering San Francisco Bay and in many cities in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
