Recent owner of a wonderful LiteSport 4, I am not really happy of De-Rigging it. May be I do not well understand the method described in owner's manual page 21. "Pull down on the top side wires. This will lower the compensator at the top of the king post, allowing the king post to be lowered onto the sail".
I suppose we have to pull the VG on to slower the compensator but nothing happens...
In fact it is very difficult to lower the king post onto the sail. Would you be kind enough to explain me the technique.
The most effective technique to lower the top side wire (compensator) is to engage the VG after the pull back has been released and before bringing the wings together. The king post will fold down with little resistance using this method.
