You definitely have to keep an eye on that sheet after you tacked. I have seen this addressed in a great cruising book I have just seen (Handbook of Offshore Cruising by Jim Howard).
In one of the illustrations he shows putting some material on the shrouds (Tied rag, etc) to prevent unwanted chafe.
