Jib Sheet Leads

Here are two shots from this year's non-misery Misery Cruise. Wanderlove joined us and coincidentally has the same genny block set up that we use.

Normally, the forward pads are for the main winches. The sheet is led from the clew of the sail through a moveable sheet block, then to a stationary foot block that sets the sheet up to approach the winch at the correct angle whatever position the sheet block is in. my A30, a liner boat, has a lifeline stanchion in just the right position to serve as the anchor for the foot block, which we shackle to the bale on the stanchion base.
