Why would you not try to go to some Open meetings?
Open meetings improve your sailing abilities.
Dealing with different challenges, (more better sailed boats; waves at Shoreham; Wind Shifts inland; different tides etc.) improves your performance when you get back to your own club.
And they are great fun and a chance to dedicate 2 whole days and the intervening overnight to sailing rather than needing to rush back from the club to re-engage with normal life.
I would recommend everyone to try Open meetings at least once (preferably twice as you will have learnt from the first) and then you will not want to break the habit.
