Rig as presently configured with all running rigging left long. After sailing it a number of times you will have a better idea as to how you wish to fairlead your lines for single handing. If you are going to install a mains'l reefing system, either single or double line, look at some schematics from Harken or others to see how this would be fairled so as not to foul your existing running rigging back to the cockpit.
Sail it first. Look at as many photos of deck layouts as you can for ideas. If you submit a photo of your deck and cockpit you will get much more input from this forum.
Sail it like you stole it.
