Roly, your description is the same way I do it. when flying the rig, the board is pointing straight into wind. I sometimes sit the foot of the sail on the board between the back footstraps and wait. I can hold this position flying the rig, with the board stopping the clew from sinking. Then, the process of getting up (I do what Roger says above, throw rig up and land my back foot on) turns the board off the wind. By the time both feet are on and I'm sailing away the board is 90 deg to the wind, on a reach.
