It seems to be a common problem with head sail on the moorings cat getting snagged and then back winded when tacking these boats. I had a more experienced Moorings capt once come aboard and rig the spare halyard to one of the stow lockers in front of the mast. This allowed the sail to get pulled forward and away from the mast mounted wench (and other rigging that was catching it). This allowed us to tack without needing to send someone up there to pull the sail across. But I wonder if I am missing something here and would like to accomplish it without needing to jerry rig the spare halyard into the locker (which gets secured by slamming the locker on it). Does anyone have experience with the running rig on these boats who might chime in?
