My advise is to get in touch with the Botany Bay Yacht Club. It is the home base of the Endeavour yachts up there and you WILL get a crew berth on just about any race and any day with some really good people who will also teach you stuff.
Very friendly and welcoming bunch. You could do lots worse to get your feet wet.
Ask for Colin Cole and tell him I sent you his way.

Glad you had fun.
You actually sat on the boom DOWN WIND, simply put, your butt was a preventer. It kept the boom from jibing, I am guessing they had a spinnaker up at the time or had poled out the headsail to the opposite side of the mast as the main sail.
The boom was unlikely to snap as the sail was supporting the whole thing like a hammock.

Enjoy the top 5 placing, they make the lesson in humility of coming stone motherless last all the more poignant. That one will happen too, sometimes.
