       Excellent feedback. I am thinking of going forward in stages.

Stage 1
Implement a German style sheeting system similar to the photos supplied by Stephen earlier in the post.
I am thinking of replacing the current single cheek block, which feeds the Genoa sheet to the winch, with a double cheek block of a large size. Due to the down rated load the top cheek block can take. Fit two additional cockpit winches.

Try sailing with the new set up.

Stage 2
Fit cockpit traveller - retaining the German style sheeting system.

Views / thought appreciated.

Regarding sails sizes, thanks for the info - I can feel a separate post on the sail selection once I get my hardware sort out!

NB - just had a weekend sailing boat day 1 4hr beat in 20-25 knot great fun. Day 2 5 hour sailing less beating in 5 - 15Knots - female members of the crew much happier on day 2!
