Default Technique for popping cams


I am having trouble with cam rotation after transitions on my race sails and usually have to resort to 'kicking' the cams. Strangely, it is more of an issue in strong winds when I am overpoered and a bit slow to sheet in after a tack or gybe.

I have found that if I am 'hanging off' the boom (maybe because that is bending the mast) after the tack or gybe I can get them to pop better.

I have also noticed that some guys can flip a sail on the beach and get the cams to pop which I have never been able to do.

Is there a 'technique' to sheeting in that gets the cams to rotate properly?
