Genoa sheets

Have a 1976 O'Day 25. I am not sure what is the best way to run the genoa sheets back to the cockpit and to get them around the winch. The last thing I tried was this: sheets run from the sail, through the genoa car on the track, then through the cam cleat which is aft of the car, then forward to the winch.

Another possibility is to run the sheet through the genoa car, forward to the winch, then aft to the cam cleat. Either way looks strange and puts a lot of tension on the genoa car. In fact, the starboard one broke.

There is a fair lead on the deck forward of the winch but it is not adjustable and not in the right place for trimming a genoa. Works fine for the jib, though.

Any advice?
