Placement of the Jib Sheet on a 65 Snipe

Good morning,

I have a 65 Snipe and have completed most of the restoration of this wonderful little boat. It seems that the block and cleat for the jib sheet have been in several places during the boat's history and I want to try and put it in the best place possible. It appears that at one point the Jib Sheet was on the outside of the Mainstay and at other times on the inside--which is best and why?

Thanks

Bob

Re: Placement of the Jib Sheet on a 65 Snipe

Mine was set up so that I could flip the jibsheets either inside or outside the shrouds depending. It was that way on both my Seafarers (22) (29) Masthead sloops. It made enough difference so then I had to try two sheets on each side (one inside and one outside the shrouds) That didn't work so well as I couldn't keep the sheets untangled.

On a nice broad reach outside works comfortably. The rest of the time they will probably be inside. This may not be possible on a fractional rig as the jib foot may be too short for the sheets to clear the shrouds.

You can contact the snipe.org for clarification - it is a very active racing class.
