For internal halyards, it depends on which side they exit the mast.  On my
35 the main halyard exits on starboard side of mast and the primary genoa
halyard exits on port side.  I have a group of swivel blocks on either side
of the mast attached to the mast collar on the deck.  In addition I have 2
spring swivel blocks anchored, one on either side and about a foot forward
of the mast, through the deck with substantial backing plates inside the
cabin.  I have 4 cabin top winches and 8 lewmar clutches and 2 cleats, for
10 lines lead to the cockpit.


I try to prevent lines from crossing each other on their way from exiting
the mast to their respective blocks at the mast collar and I don't want them
to cross on their way back to the clutches. 


This works great on my boat.

Why do you say the primary genoa and spin halyards should be to port? 

The prim genoa is on starboard on Take Five - that is how she was rigged
when I bought her (main is also on port) - spinnaker r is to starboard.

The boat I race on has main and spin to port and genoa to starboard.


I'm not arguing just asking :-)

Even sisterboats may be rigged differently.  A little more info would be
helpful.  How many halyards, mast exits per side, mast base turning blocks
per side, deck organizers, rope clutches, etc?  Describe what's there now.


Generally, your primary genoa and spinnaker halyards should exit on the port
side of the mast.  Your main halyard is OK on the starboard side.


Enquiring minds want to know more.
