I don’t think you can. The self racking jib passes from side without touching the mast. It is also a bit smaller than a normal size jib and uses a single line attached to the track. A genoa overlaps the mast by quite a bit and requires two, one port and one starboard sheets. It wouldn’t work with the track.
