Blocks aren't generally attached to the clew or leech of a sail. Occasionally, small blocks will be attached to the reefing cringles to lower the amount of friction in the reefing system. However, I'm not a big fan of them, since they can chafe the sail near the cringles.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
