Re: Block Island race week: worth going?
Besides nobody goes to Block island any more, it's too crowded
Well said..lol. Block Island is slowly losing it's charm IMHO. Getting kicked out of the showers at Champlin's for the first time in my life was a bummer.
Yes, Champlin's showers are for "resort guests" and I stay on a town mooring. However, I rent overpriced bikes there, eat breakfast on occasion, and spend a fortune at the dock bar (well, used to).
I was there for part of race week last summer. Didn't seem as crowded as previous years. From what I understand, attendance is down due to other "big" races overlapping.
Also, as usual, it's busiest on the weekends.
