Learn how to use your VHF radio....not just the buttons but the etiquette. If you have to call for help because you're up to your knees in water you might as well not sound like a power boater

More sail will only get you to the scene of the accident faster.

I there is ONE rule about navigation that should be standardized worldwide, that's it.
Actually, most of the world use Green, Right, Returning (IALA A system). The Americas, Japan, Philippines, and South Korea (note the US influence here) use IALA B system.

Re: Your ONE piece of wisdom...

Always be wary of the amount of time, work, and money a sailboat bought off Craigslist will really take. Don't be impetuous. If you do not pay for an entire survey, at least get the engine thoroughly checked out.
p.s. Don't ever leave a #2 to sit in a pump-out head overnight.
Sorry, more than one...

Dig through every locker, every year, clear to the bottom. You'll learn what you have, what you don't have, gain more space, and save some weight.
