    Historical Note

    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.

    The newsletter recounts the activities of the club and its members. It also includes minutes, treasurer's reports, by-laws and amendments, cruise captain's guidelines and etiquette.
