Re: Cleating the Sheets...

My advice would be to stick with the open camcleat as the bullsyeye becomes just another opportunity for a knockle to hang you up half way through a tack. Because you are running the jib sheet from the winch, the swivel, bullseye and strap don't add any value to an open camcleat, unlike their usefullness when you are adjusting a traveller line from across the cockpit. several regards...
