New Racer

Hi all. I have just began racing along the Gulf Coast. I am brand new to both sailing and racing. I really don't want to irritate my skipper or look like an idiot so I'm asking for any input you all have. I haven't seen my boat yet or my crew but I have met my skipper. Folks say her boat is sleek and fast so I really want to do a good job for her and win loads of races...regattas. Are there any books or magazines that might help get me up to speed on terminology, equipment, and technique? I'd love any information you can provide. The more, the better. Thanks.

Tucks
