No clew outline line

Got a new 380 last fall, sailed it a few times last fall, sailed a few times this spring and noticed that there was no line attaching the clew of the sail to the back of the boom! Sail was not moving too far forward because of stack pack , reefing lines that went around the boom etc., but clearly it needs something.

I had some cheapo poly line that i doubled up a few times through the clew and the loop at the aft of the boom just to pull the sail back and hold it, but this isn't the best solution, and I haven't been able to pull the sail back enough.

What is on other boats. Does anyone use a pulley system, put a cam cleat on the boom. This isn't a racing boat, so I don't think I will be changing the draft of the sail often, but would like to do what is appropriate. So hearing what others have would be good. Thanks.
