I'm guessing a little on the distance, but you're right that it points down. Someting like 4-5" center to center. You should be able to tell from the shift cable mounting bracket in the bilge on the starboard side.
The cable goes from the cockpit on the port side, curves around under the cockpit sole, and then goes into the bilge and runs along the starboard side up to the engine.
So which Yankee 30 did you purchase? Where do you sail? etc.
