Re: S2 6.8 owner..Jib set up

Sailboatdata.com shows the 6.8 to be a masthead rig. The forestay will extend from the masthead to the bow. The jib halyard will extend all the way to the masthead. If you want cockpit controls, run the jib halyard from the base of the mast to a cleat at the edge of the cockpit.

Jib sheets port and starboard will extend from the clew of the jib sail back to the cockpit winches and cleats.


Just google images of jib rigging and find the one most similar to your boat.

Happy sailing!

You might walk some docks and spy on other rigs.
Should become clear to you
