Three point rigged telescopic pole. That's a foreguy, aft guy and uphaul, plus the working sheet, with the lazy sheet dangling down.
Rigging it this way is more work, but gives you more control, better trim and much more safety. The sail can be reefed or furled away with the pole staying in place. No swinging pole!
We have a dedicated uphaul and rig the guys each time we use this setup, although the foreguy is really the opposite main preventer.
@PiperPilotPaul It's attached to the boom end pulling it forward. Opposite the main sheet. So it prevents the boom from moving. Only the sail backwinds.
You can then either correct the course (most crash gybes are caused by steering mistakes) or ease out the preventer and perform a controlled gybe.
OK - got it. It helped to see the preventer lines running to the bow in your picture.
