Not sure I understand what you mean by basic mainsheet techniques, or how much experience that implies. But how 'bout ..

Coming about
Figure 8's
Stalling the boat by heading into the wind
Getting started again after being in irons
Righting after intentional capsize
Sailing backwards

An afternoon of that kind of stuff on a forgiving boat like a Sunfish and you should be able to make that thing dance. They're fun.
