The Silver Strand Boating Club is a San Diego-based sailing club that invites LGBT members of the community and travelers to band together and enjoy a day of yachting in the glorious Californian sun.

This isn't a boating experience where you just sit back and relax, but one that requires you to contribute. Every person who joins a Silver Strand Boating Club outing is given a task aboard the vessel, which they need to perform -- with help available from other club members.

What's great about this LGBT boating club is that you don't just get to enjoy yourselves and meet other members of the LGBT community, but you get to enjoy learning new skills at the same time. LGBT people are often pigeonholed into specific stereotypes, and this activity -- which at its essence is about LGBT sailing enthusiasts discovering San Diego's waterways -- aims to change that.
