|Backstay catches battens when tacking on RL24|
I am having difficulty with my mainsail battens getting caught on the backstay when tacking.
I am seeking advice or a design for a stainless steel device to be mounted at the top of the mast whereby the back stay can be released and raised clear to allow the main to swing across. I have seen on other boats fibreglass struts that lift the backstay clear during a tack.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
