They're a rather more numerous and well founded class in Aus I think you'll find.

Keep your head out of the boat...
    Make sure you keep an idea of the 'bigger picture' - Just because you are on a nice lift doesnt mean your not sat in fowl tide. Dont focus on one thing too much.

Having sailed the Pacer nationals one year in a borrowed boat; make sure the fittings are all well screwed down and the hull isn't rotten. We kept pulling bits off !

More generally, get a good book on racing and race tactics. You would be surprised how many people have raced for years and still don't tack on headers etc.
