Absolutely. They will have newbie sails on Wed. evenings and the racing is done on Tuesday evenings. I'm pretty sure the newbie sails start weeks before the racing season so I'll have a chance to do exactly what you stated. The best part is, I don't have to join the YC to participate in these events. However, if I find myself bonding with the members well, I'm sure I'll join at some point since the YC is less than 5 minutes from my home.
