Mainsheet System

Help !!

A while back Alex posted a diagram of the mainsheet system on Giulietta.

I'm trying to understand how that system works.

If you don't know about his system it essentially has a mainsheet that goes to two winches, one on either side of the cockpit. I'm trying to understand how the line splits into two when it exits the boom attachments.

Even a pointer to a web link would be great cos Alex is away I believe and may not be able to answer himself.

Cheers
