What members have to say about Sprite Island:
"Summer just wouldn’t be summer without Sprite. I am on a mini-vacation each time I visit the island.” - Carol Harrigan, member since 1989
“Finding Sprite forever changed our summers, adding endless hours of waterfront fun, new friends, and a perfect base from which to enjoy boating on Long Island Sound. Swimming on the beach, sunsets on the great lawn, and grilling with our kids will define their childhood summers, infused with island exploration, sailing, and friends who will last a lifetime.” - Jim Siewart, member since 2016
“I grew up on this island and spent my formative years working here as a launch operator. It’s a privilege to be returning as the club manager.” - Jeremie Blais, member since 1993
