need to raise the Jib.

Consider to reattach the lifelines at the base/bottom of the pulpit instead of connecting them at the top rear of the pulpit. Connecting at the base will leave a ''slot'' for the jib to exit overboard without much ''laying over the lifelines''.
Raising the jib with a lanyard, will make the sail less aerodynamically efficient, will tend to heel the boat more, etc.; but, it can be done.
