The genoa sheets should not be running through a cam cleat to get to the winch. Generally, the genoa sheets will run from the clew of the sail, back through the fairlead on the genoa car, to a turning block and then forward to the winch. From the winch they will either go to a cleat of some sort—usually clam or cam cleats, or if the winch is a self-tailer, they'll end in the tailing jaws.

Photos of the various pieces on your boat would help.... As would asking around on the O'Day group lists.

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.
