Re: Unhooked self-launch for safety

Letting go the bar won't help if there is a rear line fouled. Enough people have died that we should acknowledge that we aren't fast enough as a species to activate the chicken loop safety , or smart enough to learn about the weather before launching the kite. Not a bad idea to hold the chicken loo...
