Rookie on a San Juan 21

Next week I'm heading out on my first real sailing adventure. I recently bought a San Juan 21 and have no idea how to sail it. The goal of the adventure is to learn, but I'm wondering what things I most definitely should not do. I'll be living on it for an extended period (2-3 weeks, will be hanging out climbing on land during) on Canyon Ferry reservoir in Montana, then once I get my **** together I'll head for bigger water or sell it depending on how it goes. Any advice would be appreciated, positive or negative. I have designed a mass raising system and raised the main once. Besides that, books and a small single sail boat on a lake in wisconsin is my only sailing experience.

Thanks for the help,

Kyle

P.S. If I'm destined for failure and sinking the boat, advice on how to sell my boat would also be appreciated!
