Block Island race week: worth going?

I am planning a LI sound cruise for a week to 10 days this summer with my father and brother. I'm 27 years old, my brother a bit younger. My father never sailed in his life until recently, and now he is REALLY into going cruising (on my boat ).

I had thought to make the destination Newport, but stopping off at Block Island or maybe even further if time and winds permit (vineyard? Nantucket?)

Is it worth waiting for race week to go to Block Island? (I won't be racing) What is the scene during race week for people my age, and my father's age? Will I have trouble finding a spot to anchor?
