Re: Cool, soft way of attaching jib sheets

I use a cow hitch when I have a single sheet, but I do think that it's hard on the clew of the sail. This system allows for an open loop through the sail so it isn't putting any wear on the corner.

I'm interested to see the instructions on tying the knot. "Bubble" isn't on animated knots or in my knot books.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
