Always have electrical tape and a multi tool on your person. ALWAYS

Also when your on the rail with nothing to do start thinking about the next move, gybe set, regular etc. Make sure that you are heard and understood by the crew behind you. If the sail can't go up / down say so, rather than have something fuck up.

And don't be afraid to ask questions, any reasonable skipper / fellow crew should gladly talk you through what's about to happen rather than just throw you into the fray.

Finally, do not get it into your head that you are gods gift to sailing. Stay humble and make sure that everyone on board has nothing but good things to say about you (competent, reliable, smart, NOT a dickhead). Word travels fast in the sailing community and a good reputation can take you to some very good places.

My 2 cents anyway, have blocking the rail bait from the waves

This!
