A buntline hitch would work fairly well, and is a fairly permanent way of attaching the clew. However, if you're using a bunt line hitch, tie it to a shackle, so that you can remove the outhaul at the end of the season, as the only way to untie a buntline hitch is often a knife.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
