It depends on the size of the jib. Some boats with small working jibs and shrouds that are set quite wide sheet on the inside. Most sheet outside the shrouds. All genoas sheet outside the shrouds.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
