Sheet Leads with Yankee on PSC 37

Dear folks, we just received our new Yankee for our PSC 37 and I'm wondering where the sheets lead. Is this what that tracks on the side decks are for?

Many thanks, Jay

My friend has a 34 with a Yankee. He normally leads his sheet outside the shrouds to the toe rail (same place as my genoa). I think you would use the side decks sheets if you wanted to lest the sheet inside the shrouds on a hard beat. Have not tried this as I have no Yankee.

Hey Jay,

I had a 110% Yankee jib. I lead it through the inner track - but then to get the most out of it I worked out I should use the inner track when heading upwind, and the outer track when going down wind - considerable advantage, producing much the best sail shape in each direction.

Other than that, I used the outer track for the 150% Genoa and also the spinnaker.
