Here, you can learn how to get to us before you learn how to sail with us! (To CONTACT us, go there.)
Want to know why you’d want to visit? Location, location…
nb: we can often drive our students to/from the Sailing Center from Manhattan! No fee. We can also do some pick-ups from the Sheepshead Bay train station, although you’ll probably enjoy the 15′ walk mostly along the water. You’ll want to arrange pickups in advance, of course. Hit us up to discuss.
GPS address: 3050 Emmons Avenue, Sheepshead Bay, NY, 11235. This lands you at Miramar Yacht Club, with a gated entrance on the Avenue. No parking at the Club; sorry. But, most club members park on the street anyway and it’s both nearby and safe. If you made an appointment, contact us by the method we instructed and we’ll let you in. No appointment? We might not be there to do that.
In summary: you can get to us in Brooklyn easily by many routes. Driving? You’re used to GPS-ing it with Google Maps or Waze. That’s what we do.
TAKING PUBLIC? You can map it out on any number of apps, but for now, know that these are the trains and buses that come close.
SUBWAY, with or without BUS connections:
B & Q go to Sheepshead Bay stop. From there, it’s about a 15′ walk and mostly along the water (after you pass several nice bakeries and coffee shops, with another one block from our location… tempting…)! Don’t want to walk? Hop a cab right downstairs from train – they’re sitting at a depot! Or, Lyft/Uber it. Or… take the bus. The B4 takes you to Shore Parkway/Nostrand Avenue. We’re a few minutes from there. (Walk south toward the Bay along Nostrand; turn left on Emmons, along the water. We’re on the next block!
A &/or C to Nostrand Avenue, then transfer to the B44+. Get off at Shore Parkway/Nostrand Avenue. Same walking directions as above.
2 or 5 to Flatbush Avenue/Brooklyn College. (You can connect to the 2 or 5 from the 3, 4 or 6 depending where you transfer, of course. Atlantic Ave/Barclays is the last stop all the express trains make together.) From there, transfer to the B44+ bus, which takes you almost to our location (get off at Shore Parkway/Nostrand Ave). Same short walk!
4/5/6: take the 4 to Nostrand Avenue. Take SW exit for Nostrand/Eastern Parkway. Transfer to B44+ . Same exit/walk as above.
NB: Double check on your own transit app to verify what’s running when you’re heading down to us. Or, as we noted above, ask about a ride!
