Sailing dinghy w/o headsail

Ok, rigged boat up in the driveway today. I just wrapped the jib around the forestay, and secured it with a sail tie - easy! Also, I tied a loop into the jib halyard about 2 feet above where it gets cleated off when the jib is raised. With this loop, I can get more leverage on the halyard so that the luff is as tight as it can be - voila! I know there's a way to incorporate a block system for this purpose, but I'm not sure how to do that.
