Guess I'm not explaining myself properly (must be too late at night:eek: ) In medium to heavy weather when we switch from the main sail to the mizzen sail we have been disconnecting the halyard to stop the sail from riding up.
Rig a permanent downhaul attached either to the head board, if it has a convenient hole at the bottom, or to the uppermost slide. Belay to a cleat at the mast to hold the sail down. (Don't forget to release it before attempting to hoist the sail ;) ) Also comes in handy if the sail sticks when you need to get it down.
