A good pair of fingertip-less gloves are one of the best purchases I made for crewing.

Be on time. No, be early! You can help get the boat ready and meet the other crew.

I started sailing by showing up on the dock on race evening and asking around if anyone was short-handed. After bouncing between a few boats over the next several weeks, I finally settled in with a J/30. I've been sailing with them going on three years now.
Great stuff, thanks! I plan on starting off just as you did. Do you own your own S/V now?
