Talk to Mike Wariker (pacer national champ) he sails at bbsc if that's helpful.

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.

Check the start signals before you go out on the water!

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.

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