Sunglasses might be a good idea, as would be sunscreen. The amount of UV you get on the water is almost double of that on land, since the UV reflects off the water quite nicely.
If you have your own inflatable PFD, it might be a good idea to bring it... especially if it has a harness. Bringing your own tether is also a good idea, if you have one. Bringing your own safety gear is generally a good idea, since you're familiar with it. This is especially true if you're a very small or very large person, since they may not have a PFD that will fit you comfortably.
Deck shoes or boots are probably a good idea.
Carrying a rigging knife, just in case of an emergency is also a good idea.
You might want to pack a spare change of clothes, including some warmer clothes, like polarfleece. One final thing to carry is a towel... If it gets really wet out... it can be useful to have one.
Hope this helps.
Good luck, and remember to listen to the skipper.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
