Hey there - I'm a new 5o5 owner and I'm setting up my rig for the first time. My jib halyard (cunningham) looks like it is meant to attache to the forestay tension blocks presumably to automatically adjust when I move the forestay blocks however it isn't rigged and I am not smart enough to figure it out.

Anyone have a similar setup that can help me out?

Thanks

You need to feed this control into the forstay. The idea is that when you rake the you don't want the jib luff tightening. If its not fed into the forstay it will get tighter and tighter.
