Sprite Island Yacht Club (SIYC) is a small private club on one of the most picturesque islands on Long Island Sound. It is located just off the shores of Norwalk and Westport. Sprite Island offers moorings for large boats and dry sail for small personal watercraft. It also boasts a beach, snack bar, lawn area with grills and fire pits. The active social calendar includes weekly sailing events, happy hours and kids activities. Members can also enjoy large full island gatherings that include the best seats for the 4th of July fireworks, a formal opening and closing ceremony and an authentic New England clam bake. As a member-run club there are many ways to get involved and meet lots of people.
This seven-acre island is one of the highest points on the Connecticut shoreline. The island was formerly a private estate and still contains several small buildings from this time. Begun informally as Ascension Yacht Club in 1946, the island was purchased in 1952 and the name was then changed to Sprite Island Yacht Club. The club can accommodate a maximum of 150 memberships and boasts many members who have grown up on the island.
