I have inmast so I do not have a sail in the way. There are no spare sheaves to be had since the outhaul sheave is always in use, even when the sail is furled and there are no reefing sheaves, but I could put a (very) substantial block on the eye that is on the mast to lead the line to one of the winches on the mast. I imagine that I would not have a spinnaker up in those conditions so those winches are available.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
