Pay attention, let things sink in, and try and get the most helm time in the worst weather.
I got lucky; right before my class was to start everyone backed out! I paid extra (not a lot) for the instructor and myself to go out for the whole week. Spent 2 days (about 12 hrs) in nasty, nasty weather. Money well spent.
I wish i had learned more about light wind sailing on a big rig.
