Rules Verbaige to be updated in the class rules:

Cunningham, Outhaul, Vang and Traveler control lines may be of any length, diameter or material, provided they are continuous and are used for their express purposes. The addition of knobs, knots or loops to facilitate grasping is permitted. [Increasing Cunningham and outhaul purchase up to a 4:1 ratio is permitted.  Blocks may be added/used for these purposes.]  The Vang system must allow the boom to rise 30 degrees from horizontal when eased. 

Below is an example of a possible arrangement to support the blocks. This was tested yesterday in 10 knots and performed well. The purchase allowed more fine tuning of the downhaul and adjustment of the outhaul while under heavy load.
