Beyond the required safety gear mentioned above, you might find a boathook handy, and maybe 2 more dock lines to act as spring lines (depending on how the boat fits the slip). Don't know your lake, but maybe a compass and a chart. And just in case, a portable VHF radio is not a bad idea.

Best idea might be to bring an experienced sailor along, whose tips about sail trim, weight placement, etc, etc, might get you off to the best start.
