I use a continuous jib sheet. I just passed the center of the line made into a loop, through the clew, then passed both ends through the loop. I've seen some guys use a fisherman's bend for this, but then it's just about impossible to untie.

I'm sure someone else can offer a more secure solution, but this works well for me.
