I guess so but what troubles me is how that is going to work with a central winch on that position, It could not be direct so I would have to be a German sheeting system and if so it would imply horizontal lines crossing the cockpit creating an obstacle to a racing crew.

Unless they modify a lot a boat in what regards rigging, including the number and position of winches I cannot see how it will be done and modifying the position on winches is a lot more complicated than adding a traveler.
