Traveller Controls

Use the cam cleats. They are the right tool for a line that is constantly a traveller. Like most boats with lines led aft, the clutches may be more valuable when used for halyards and other control lines not adjusted as often. You only have room for so many clutches with a fair lead to winches. Think of the traveller control as "freeing up" two of those for more important jobs.
