I am not superstitious, but I probably should be given how little actual sailing I've done and how frequently certain superstitions have been fulfilled:
Left on first overnight trip with family on a Friday evening- ran aground, spent the whole night getting her off.
On my first boat we set out for an underway christening- the bottle failed to break on the first swing- not long after that the wind picked up, the mast came down, the engine failed and we drifted in the rocks.
In over my head?

What is all this stuff and how does it work?
