Getting to the SYC
Sayville Yacht Club is located at Lat 40° 44’00” N, Long 73° 02’07” W. The light signal on the flag pole is Red over White over RED
The area is serviced by three major airports and several civil air fields. The closest and easiest is Long Island Macarthur with Southwest Air being the dominant carrier. John F. Kennedy International Airport has flights to most places in the US as well as the world. From JFK public transportation is available via the Airtrain with a connection at Jamaica Station to the Long Island Railroad.
Take the Long Island Railroad to the Sayville Station and its is approximately a $10 taxi ride to the Sayville Yacht Club. The third airport is LaGuardia. While many domestic carriers serve this airport it is the most difficult to use, having little public transportation. A taxi from here will be in excess of $120. Private cars are a better alternative and service both JFK and LaGuardia however the cost is about the same and advanced booking is required.
The Long Island Railroad services Long Island from Pennsylvania Station at 34th St. in New York City. Amtrak has some service to Penn Station. Boarding at Penn, look for a Montauk or Babylon Branch train with stops at Sayville. Again, approximately a $10 taxi to the club from Sayville Station.
