New crew member cheat sheet

I frequently (almost exclusively) sail with complete sailing novices. All the new terms can be overwhelming, so I made this quick-reference guide to help them out. Maybe it will be useful for your own crew, or inspire you to create something similar. The idea was to be as simplistic as possible, so some artistic license was taken with the terms used. I wanted people who had never been on a boat before to know enough after reading this guide to be able to handle the boat.
Corrections/additions welcome.
