S2 8.0 reaf set up

Does anyone have a diagram on how to set up the reef on the 8.0? I know all lines can run back to the cockpit, I would like to do so if possible.

Down haul at the back of the sail with cleat to the boom, cunningham at the front with the line leading to the stbd side of the cabin top beside the main halyard, ( i have a cleat to tie this off with) hook the cunningham to the reefing point on the main, head up wind allowing the tension on the main to ease until luffing, loosen the main halyard tighten down the cunningham then the downhaul until the reef has been taken in the main, return tension on the main , with the main halyard tidy up, fall off and comtinue on.

Thanks Greg, I now see the set up and it makes sence. BTW, when I set out to re-rig the running rigging I found a boom full of wasp nests, really full, I could have kept it in there for floatation. I wonder now how much is in the mast. I'll find out in the spring. Good sailing!
