The boat was a DBR-1 built by DB Marine and chartered for the regatta.

In the pictures you can see that there is only one cleat for both the main sheet and the jib sheet.

There is only an “up and down” jib lead (it is not possible to move it fore and aft).

 

Control lines for the skipper:

-traveller
– jib lead adjustment

Control lines for the crew:

– mast aft
– vang

Mast forward is in the middle of the deck, behind the mast.
