Anyone have some tips for hooking and un-hooking the mail sail?

Assuming this is a Tiger question, The manual is very helpful for this question - link: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic.hobiecat.com%2Fdigital_assets%2Ftigerassy.pdf
(Page 15 specifically)

If inquiring on a Wild Cat this is the link: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https%3A%2F%2Fstatic.hobiecat.com%2Fdigital_assets%2Fwildcat_gb_201412.pdf
(page 37 specifically)

for the Wildcat i Ty the knot on the sail side and not on the mast side (see the manual )
I find it easyer to unhook
To unhook i raise the sail and turn the mast rotaion max to the port side and let go the pressure on the hoist rope

what i can remember is to unhook the tiger sail we tuned the mast rotation to the starboard side
