Do you have the white line marked for the different positions for the genoa at various reef points or for various sized headsails.
A friend of mine put different colored whippings at the various points for "neutral" settings for the different head sails she uses.
Makes adjusting the genny cars a lot easier for newbies on her boat... since she can get them into the ball park by saying pull the blue genoa car control line to the "red" whipping for the 110% jib and the "black" whipping for the 150% genoa and so on.. and then tweak it by looking at the telltales or for the wind conditions.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
