Because I sail with the dinghy forward to the mast, I run a central jackline from the mast, over the dinghy to a strong fixing in the bow. The dingy is strongly connected to the boat by multiple attachments. The idea is to have enough space to move (without a very short tether) and eliminating all possibility to fall overboard.
