The Rainbow Regatta is a joint venture between the Barbary Coast Boating Club and the Golden Gate Yacht Club.
The purpose and objectives of the Rainbow Regatta are as follows:
a) To expand tolerance and education for both the LGBT and the non-LGBT communities through participation in the world of boating, while at the same time providing a safe, knowledgeable venue to truly highlight the wonderfully diverse sailing environment of the San Francisco Bay.
b) To raise funds for and provide engagement opportunities with non-profit community organizations through an exciting and competitive sailing event.
c) To raise awareness of the benefits that good boating practices produce for all members of the community.
When you Can't Change the Direction of the Wind, Adjust the Sails.
