Hi, We have put 20mm PVC tube on the forward shroud. Undo the turn buckle and thread it on. It goes from the turnbuckle upto where the frame for the pole fitting is. Perfect protection. Nice and simple. Could be done on all the mainmast shrouds.
Kind regards

It is an issue that you need to solve. 
 
Either chafing protection over the sheet, on the shrouds or re-routing the genoa sheet.

After backing the jib the sheet under load is to windward.  How does one prevent this control sheet from chafing on the shrouds?
