Just wondering how others have their main sheet rigged.  The blocks look like it is designed for a classic "German bridle" with two ends of the sheet led back to the cockpit, one each side.

Mine is set up with one end tied to the boom between two blocks, and the working end fed back to the cockpit underneath the vang. 

Thanks

George.

Thanks Jon

So there is only one end of the sheet led back to the cockpit and the other end is attached to a becket block under the boom. 

Many thanks.

Thanks Capt Cook!

Quite a few of the smaller Hanse's seem to have the double sheet German bridle system, but I see only this single sheet versions on the 470.

I found the post you referred to which is driven by same desire to be able to centre the boom when close hauled.

Some thinking needed.... 

Thanks. 

George.
