Thanks all for the replies - Yes I agree I dont like having lines cross - All my halyards are internal and each has its own block and cleat on the foward cabin top except the main which is lead back to the cockpit and shares a winch with the main sheet (each have their own clutches and cleats and the winch is a self-tailer.

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 J

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.
