I new a guy who won a race by slipping the anchor over the side to stop while everyone else was going backwards with the current, and when the wind came in, it came in form ahead of him so he got the wind first.
An addition to Giu's advice is to rember everything your told. It helps if you only have to be told how to do something once. Having experience on other boats helps with this, because then you only have to remember particulars about that boat, because everyone does things a little differently.
But, you you are in doubt on how to do something that you are asked to do, by all means ask, even if you have been told how to do it before. Most people would much rather tell you again than have you do it wrong.
And don't forget to have fun. As a general rule, any yelling is not personal, but just a way to convey the urgency of the task at hand.
