Does this look right to you?

Looks like an inboard sheeting position for non-overlapping Jibs - actually a very good idea given the location of the main genoa tracks as it enables much closer sheeting angles.

However in this case the lazy sheet seems to be under tension and the car is too far forwards (or the sail is too big) which means the sail shape is pretty hopeless

The rope/sheet running over the stanchon post is also outside the shrouds. It doesn't look as it would be able to serve any purpose under tension.

Clew too close to the centreline of the boat. Acting more like a air-brake than a sail.

Yes! but I think I would sort it before I took a picture of it. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif
My main query was why, what appears to be the working sheet is not under tension?
