self taught spinaker handling

The conditions this weekend are perfect to try the spinnaker. I've read several step-by-step pages. It seems pretty straightforward but just to be prudent;

What are the most likely places where a novice can damage people or gear?

I think i'm a competent boater, line handling, safety, navigation, etc but i'm pretty clueless about the actual sailing part.

In over my head?

What is all this stuff and how does it work?
