Re: Block Island race week: worth going?

Did it for 30 years. Lot's of punishing fun if your racing. The harbor will be very crowded. If you enjoy 20 somethings getting trashed on free rum, then go. Otherwise avoid it. The racring will be a couple miles to the north west of the island. Aside from the round the island event you can't watch from shore and unless you stay well above the windward mark or well below the leeward mark you don't want to be out there in the way.
