I've seen cam cleats also used to hold the halyard up. A clutch is too big and too much work to open. On a 30 footer, a mast man would be a good idea if you have extra crew. On my 25' a mast man would just get in the way.

Make the spin exit on the starboard side if you normally do port roundings. Keeps the 'jumper' on the high side.
