Re: Halyards to cockpit?
Have you read any tips and techniques by Andrew Evans, a singlehanded racer in SF Bay area who sails an Olson 30? Many great tips in his free ebook at sfbaysss dot org. He details how to use surgical tubing to steer a steady course as he works the bow rigging (spinnaker for him - not mainsail or jib).
181 pages, but it is free and has a good index. Well worth the time, imo, for anyone who sails, especially a SH sailor. The ebook also includes his suggested internet resources for additional info eg. trimming sails, the physics of sailing, weather, etc.
