Making Cal 2-24 more friendly for sailing with 2 people

We have a Cal 2-24, which I think was designed with single-handed sailing in mind. So, the jib lines run far back to about where the main and tiller are. This makes it really hard and awkward to sail with two people. I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on how we could change the rigging a little to make it easier to sail with two people where they aren't completely in each others way. It seem that most simply if we could just have the jib winches further up towards the cabin, but I'm curious if anyone's done this, has any suggestions or tips?

I would move the winches forward as far as you'd like as long as they fit on the coaming and they have the same structural support under the coaming. Another key factor is where do you sheet your largest headsail? Do you have a long track along the coaming like the one above? The winch may not fit there.

99.. pictures would help tremendously to see what your setup is and how it might be improved. As zz4gta has said, moving winches can be simple matter, and may well be your easiest 'fix'.
