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.

The 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 (7 feet at midchannel) to the head of the project about 60 yards below the first fixed highway bridge. The anchorage basin had depths of 6 feet.

The Duck Island Yacht Club is located off of Hammock Rd. South in Westbrook, CT
