Re: Genoa sheet routing to high side....

Your suggestion still has you going to the low side to trim the sail on the winch. Do like the J24's do and use a ratcheting jib lead block. Go straight from the jib block to the winch on the high side.

There's no good way to get rid of lines under tension across the cockpit.
