First of all how comfortable are you at getting up on deck during a race and high winds? If you are pretty agile and don't mind going on deck occasionally then I'd recommend you just run the halyards and spinnaker control lines to the cockpit. I race my 37 and go on deck for the reef lines, outhaul, and vang as well, of course, to set the spinnaker pole and whisker pole. If you are real uncomfortable going up on deck then run as many lines back to the cockpit as you can manage.
