Jib Sheeting: Rosen/Wenrup of Sweden

The jib sheeting system on the Ebbe Rosen/Olle Wenrup 505. They lead the jib sheet further aft and further outboard than they normally want to sheet, and barberhaul down and slightly in. A line - which appears to be fixed length - controls the distance inboard that the barber-hauler block can go.

Ebbe and Olle race a Waterat 505, which has the main thwart angle forward as it goes outboard.
