Re: Cool, soft way of attaching jib sheets

I have taken my "lead" from the IODs I crew on occasionally and use 2 sheets and bowlines. A little bulky I guess but it is good enough for the world champions racing those lithe little boats. It makes for an easy and quick change when changing head sails. "Soft"? What would hard be? Not a metal connection I hope? Jeeze!
