Hi All.
I have a (possibly controversial??) thought:
It appears that most people have the Genoa fairlead set as far aft as the track allows.
It also seems that people who are more interested in comfort than strict performance (I include myself in this) worry about the comfort of the crew sitting on the track.
So – if mostly the track is set aft, and if comfort is important, what would the impact be if the track were replaced with a swivel cleat fitted at the aft end of one of the side benches?
Perhaps something like:

I would welcome your thoughts!! 🙂
