Question about using a trapeze

I have really been scoping on the laser 2's lately, but I have a question the really pertains to any boat like this. When you sailing like this, how exactly do you get around the boom when you tack? I know you would duck under it, but to you have to detach, duck under and reattach?

A trapeze is best used on boats over 32 feet in length, where it can be fashioned into a rudimentary, yet comfortable, hammock
