We have 2 ˝ sets of jib/genoa sheets. One set for “normal” or windy conditions, one set of “dental floss” and a “changing” sheet, which we use for headsail peals. (No bald headed changes for us!) The changing sheet also gets used when we are on a reaching leg and we want to switch to the toe rail fairlead. Needless to say, bowlines work for us. Because spectra cored line is expensive, we untie and store them below after use. I have an old length of Dacron line that I use to secure the roller furled sail during the week.
