Re: Block Island race week: worth going?

Newport-Bermuda race is this year, so many racers will go to that instead of BI. Even so, racers will crowd the restaurants and hotels. That's why they hold it before the hot summer season really starts - to boost revenues before the real crowd arrives. If you're not racing, you won't fit in - and might not even be allowed at the parties. Then you'll have trouble getting reservations at any place that's good. I'd avoid BIRW if I wasn't actually racing.
