While Landing the Parasail
When the flight is finished, it’s time to bring it in for a landing. The first touchdowns will be in the water. Make sure the landing area is clear. The driver reduces the throttle and the flyer gently drifts downward. The boat should be stopped completely before splashdown to avoid dragging the chute through the water. After landing, the flyer unhooks from the chute and should be quickly picked up by the boat crew. The Parasail is brought into the boat carefully and is immediately ready for its next flight. After several water landings flyers in top physical condition may even choose to touchdown on land. This requires a great deal more skill from both the flyer and driver. Land landings increase the risk of injury to the flyer, but are a great way to keep dry.
Security and Safety are of prime concern in this sport, since even a seemingly insignificant oversight can balloon into a major accident. As a safety precaution, a Life Jacket and Helmet are a must, while participating in water sports. In addition, one can also use a wind meter to determine the optimum wind speed for parasailing.
Do not participate in Parasailing unless all crew-members and flyers have carefully read and understood the instructions manual. Never exceed the operating limitations described in the instructions manual. Review safety procedures before each flight. Inspect all Parasailing components before and after each flight. A few precautions can go a long way in ensuring a comfortable and safe flight.
Parasailing is a thrilling and breathtaking adventure sport for nature loving people.
