back stay
Our RL24 mk3 (#408) must be one of the few around this part of the world without a backstay. I believe after a lot of masts went west in the Bay to Bay a few years back, backstays became the norm. Is there a retro-fit mast truck available or plans to enable one to be fabricated? Apart from holding the stick up when running, I think I need some backstay tension to free the leach on the main in light weather.
