I have aPearson 26 One Design (low straight cabin top) and also have thought about rigging both halyards to the cockpit. Question: Are winches really needed to raise the main and jib sails when rigged this way. I figured a couple turning blocks at the mast and a pair of clutches toward the rear of cabin top. Seems to me the amount of purchase required would not change with this setup. Am I missing something?
