tomaz_423 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.

Waugh 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.

TrueBlue That's strange - they were there a minute ago. Try right clicking the red X, then Properties and pasting the url into your browser.

Waugh 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.

sailingdog 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.

If you route the sheets inside the shrouds, I bet you can get the clew farther inboard and then you will be able to sail closer to the wind. Right guys?

Hey, he said he could take it.

It's your call knothead.

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

How are the jib sheets routed to the cockpit in relation to the shrouds? I believe we tried every configuration over this past weekend (outside, inside, in between) but neither struck me as the obvious location. Boat type below.

Waugh 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.
