Thanks for the illustration Giuletta. I'm going to go look at Elans tomorrow and we'll see what I think of them.

Good post. thanks. One of the fist things I am working on is to organize the running rigging. I have to get 2 new winches (amonst other things) and this really explains to me where and why I need to place them.

for some reason the two cabin winches on my R24 were in front of cleats. I was like, huh? I guess clutches are relatively new eh? I wanna replace the worn plastic cleats with clutches anyway, guess I'll be moving the winches as well.

You could always have NO winches like mine, just cleats. Ya better be quick to set the Genoa after a tack or you'll be cussing all day. I aim to change that as soon as I figure out a place to put 'em.
