There are lots of books about it (google??) as well as many articles in sailing magazines. Some of the Racing Rules of Sailing are different for team racing, so it would be good to read them over and consider the various situations where you might be able to take advantage of them (or be subject to them). It also sounds like you don't have a team at this point. You need at least six One-Design boats (three to a team) and the people to man the three on your team. At a regatta the different teams do a series of round-robin races enabling each one to race against all of them at one point or another. Sometimes there is also a tennis ladder elimination-type setup, after the round-robins. It can be quite exciting. College and High School teams routinely drive a hundred or more miles to a regatta.
