Re: FJ in need of blocks, newbie at helm. Help!
I'll also weigh in on keeping your rigging simple to start with.
You should be able to sail it just fine with decent jib & main sheets. Add a traveler and you should be able to sail upwind a little better. Add a boom vang and you should be able to sail down wind a little better. I think that it is a good idea to know how to sail your boat well with the simplest of controls as you will then appreciate the ways that a traveler & vang can help shape the sail.
One of the reasons I like sailing a Sunfish is there is almost none, zero rigging on it; just a halyard and a sheet.
