First Time Out: Checklist

Heller SailNetters,

I completed my ASA101 last week and am itching to get out and get some experience. A buddy of mine has agreed to go out with me in a few weeks when we rent a Catalina 22'. What advice can you offer me when going out for the first time.
  • Reef the main if windy
  • Life Jackets/Type 4/Fire Extinguisher/Flare/Noisemaker
  • Raise/Drop the sail with head to wind

I know I am missing some other items, these are just what come to mind immediately. What lessons did you learn on your first trip out as Skipper?

As always, I appreciate your time and input.
