Not where to start a search to understand what the bungee does (the last few seconds of the clip). Interested. Thanks.

That would be a "Barber Hauler" which is used to hold the clew further outboard for downwind sailing. Usually these are an adjustable line rather than bungee.

If you have tramps, you can use a shorter 2-3' adjustable bungee and clip it between your outside tramp strap and your sail's clew.

Put one on each side. Works great, no installation required and costs a few bucks.

I'm new to all this...do you have any pix on this set-up?

Cheers

No, but the bungees are well described here:

And the "real" homemade Barber Hauler by Kayak Bob is here:
