Directions to the club:

From Business 80 in West Sacramento, take the Harbor Blvd. exit and travel south on Harbor Blvd. (that'll be a left hand turn from the eastbound 80 exit (red path) and a right from the westbound 80 exit (green path)). Harbor Blvd. will dead end into the Port of West Sacramento. A note for those coming from the Bay Area: Business 80 and Interstate 80 are different freeways in Sacramento. When entering Sacramento there will be an offramp to the right for Interstate 80/Reno. Don't take that exit. Continue on the main freeway (Business 80) into Sacrmento. See the below picture:

At the light, take a right. Do NOT enter into the Port at the the Guard station (shown as a small house on the above map) in front of you. After taking a right, there will be a yellow iron rod gate less than a 1/4 mile up on the left. Here is a picture of it:

Take a left through the yellow gate. Follow that truck! Inside the gate, you'll cross the railroad track and enter the port. About 100 yards inside the port, you'll come to a paved road on your right. Take a right onto that road and follow it as it winds through the port. Eventually that road will pass a training center and dead end into a closed gate. Take a right on that gravel road and follow it to our clubhouse at the end of the peninsula. See this graphic for details of the route through the port:
