Symphonie Baby Stay

Our babystay is 10mm dyneema with a swivel Gibb hook to the deck. Therefore it can be removed instantly, and it needs to be available because it doubles as our spinn pole uphaul/topping lift. We always remove the staysail before the spinn hoist, so this works. Infact when racing (i.e. when we will want a spinn hoist v quickly) we rarely use the staysail preferring the 135% Genoa or the blade jib as the upwind sail choice for speed. When cruising ... well the priorities are different.
