If you boat has been raced, there should genoa tracks located inside of the toerail, fairly close to the cabin sides, running from behind the chainplates to the front of the cockpit, so that jibs from small (100%) to large (150%) can be trimmed to a close angle. Yes, fully inside the lifelines. If the jib is over the liflines, you are not sailing the boat as close to the wind as it is happy to go, and with speed.
