The 49er has a floating block that can be raised or lowered depending on
wind conditions. To avoid sheeting out in heavy air, raising the block
opens the leech by pulling the boom towards the centerline rather than
downwards. In lighter wind, lowering the block closes the leech and creates
an efficient sail shape.
