Hi Henry, great videos and great how you are helping so many people! A top tip you could maybe include for getting the rig out of the water is to pop to battens round to the right side of the mast before you try to get the rig up - makes it so much easier. Just like you say with the mast perpendicular to the wind but rather than swimming all the way to the tip of the mast have you tried holding to mast about an arms width above the boom and pulling / sliding it upwind towards you - not lifting at all - the sail literally pops out of the water - from there it is easy to grab the boom and go - using this technique I can get a sail flying without using my hands at all - just my teeth :)
