Just be really safety conscious. A girl of about your age died recently in the Annapolis (MD) area while trapezing on a 420. Although the exact reason for this tragedy has yet to be formally documented, it appears that she got trapped under the boat after a downwind death roll and drowned because she couldn't free herself.
All this happened during a high school practice, supervised by an experienced coach.
