The Duck Island Yacht Club is on the west
side of the Patchoque River just before the turn north that leads to
the fixed bridge on Route 1.
excerpt below is taken from paragraph 201 in chapter 8, "Eastern
Long Island Sound", of the NOS U.S. Coast Pilot 2, Atlantic Coast,
Cape Cod to Sandy Hook.
Patchogue River, used chiefly by
fishing and recreational
craft, empties into Duck Island Roads just west of Menunketesuck
Island. A channel leads from deep water in Duck Island Roads to the
first fixed highway bridge, about 0.6 mile above the mouth. The
approach channel is marked by buoys, and the river channel is marked
by private aids. A light is on the outer end of the breakwater on
the west side of the river mouth. In July 1999, the controlling
depths were 4 feet (8 feet at midchannel) to the first turn near the
mouth of Menunketesuck River, thence in January-February 1998, 6
feet (7½ feet at midchannel) to the head of the project about 60
yards below the first fixed highway bridge. The anchorage basin had
depths of 6½ feet.
The Duck Island Yacht Club is located
off of Hammock Rd. South in Westbrook, CT
