Nah, man. You might want to check here
. It's a different class, but I'm betting the running rigging
(look it up) is pretty similar. People there could likely point you in the right direction.
You really should do some research. Buy some books. Take a class. Find a sailor friend. It's a great sport/hobbie/lifestyle, and you'll find people VERY willing to help. I'm not trying to dissuade you from asking questions here, but you should get a good baseline of knowledge first.
Best of luck and let us know how things turn out!
ps. You're not likely to find a "manual" of the kind I think you are imagining.
