Re: Back stay boom supporter broke - now what?

You can easily have the main not under load while the jib is under load if you release the main sheet and keep the jib sheet tight.

We reef under sail doing that or by going hove-to (which also has the main pretty lightly loaded to avoid driving the boat off of it).

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
