6 Steps To Learn The Slingshot

Acceleration

This is the most important part!

Start off sailing accross the wind to build up speed. The loading on the rig can be huge, but it’s important to pin down every last bit of power and drive against the fin.

Slowly bear away, as you build speed your apparent speed increases – keep the rig powered as you go broader; if you bear off too quickly the power will die.

Accelerate!
