Hi Steve and Alan,
we dont have the inner forestay so fly the 90% off the main stay. I have tried a barber hauler system to sheet it inboard. Not worth the effort so we just sheet it to the outer track. Works fine. Sir Peter Blake, a renowned NZ off shore and round the world racer advised to always sail with slightly cracked (eased) sheets going to windward off shore. Gave a better overall outcome he maintained. Henri must have been of the same persuasion.
In rough weather it can reduce pounding significantly. Important if you want your boat to last.
