My experience is from different boats, but the principle is the same:
I usually sail Beneteau Oceanis 423: 140% genny, shrouds are about one foot or more inboard, track is just behind the shrouds. So outside always and on all points of sail.
Last week I have sailed on a Beneteau Cyclades 43.4: 110% genny, shrouds are attached to the outside of the hull, track is more inboard and backwards: Depending on point of sail and wind force I had to lead the sheets on outside, on inside and in between to get optimum trim.
If you ask me: very annoying as I had to change it several times. If the sail would be 5% smaller it would be clearly inside.

Huh, after manually pasting them, they now show up automatically. Weird
Thanks for the answers. I think I'll stop digging myself a hole now.

I think the fairleads may be slightly inboard of the shrouds. Can't really remember though, and it doesn't seam like it matters.
TB, your pics aren't showing up on my end so l searched for some on my own and found this one:
To me it seems they have it ran between the shrouds. Not saying anyone here is wrong, just curious.

Down Knothead... bad Knothead... sit...
For a 120% genny...definitely outside the shrouds... very unlikely to have a self-tacking 120% genny.
Knothead, technically yes, but it depends on where his genoa fairleads are. IF they are outboard of the shrouds, then routing the shrouds inboard of the shrouds isn't going to help at all.

Hey, he said he could take it.

I suppose once you experience using a whisker pole on your jib, you will understand the reason why.

Sorry, I guess I left out that the size is 120%.
So, if I'm understanding correctly, if the jib extends beyond the shrouds, then I should route the sheets on the outside of the shrouds also?

|zz4gta||On a friends Venture 24, the small sail 90-100% was routed inside the shrouds. The larger sails went outside. The object is to not have the sheet pressing or rubbing on the shrouds.|
