How to use your Parasailor
The Parasailor has been designed to be launched, flown and dowsed as simply as possible. In fact it is so straightforward that it's rapidly becoming the sail of choice for light or novice crews and solo sailors.
This guide will provide you with an overview of how to use your Parasailor, from setting your lines to gybing and dowsing. In addition, all our sails include a day's training on your own boat with a member of our expert team - so you'll be left confident on how your Parasailor works best for you.
Note - this guide applies equally to the operation of both the Parasailor and Parasail, but only Parasailor will be referred to for simplicity and clarity.

The Parasailor is supplied as standard with the excellent Easysnuffer Pro, a sleeve that covers the length of the sail. When hoisted, the snuffer launches the Parasailor and dowses it when collapsed.
The Parasailor is also supplied with a high-quality Cruising Sail Bag, which contains both the sail and the snuffer. The Cruising Bag has been designed to compress when not in use, allowing even large sails to be stored in a relatively small space.
In addition to the Parasailor, Easysnuffer and Cruising Bag (provided as standard), all you need to fly your sail is a spinnaker halyard (to launch the snuffer), sheets and guys* and either cockpit winches or cleats to handle the lines.
Note - The Parasailor can be flown with either 2 or 4 control lines. In this walk-through guide 4 control lines are used, as they offer the most flexibility and provide the greatest control of the sail. To discuss alternative ways of handling your Parasailor then please contact us.
