Another rigging question

When sailing either tack in 10 plus knots of wind, I notice slack in the leeward shrouds. The amount of slack is approximately the same on either side, but seems like it has become more noticable in the past year or so. The rigging has not been adjusted in at least two and a half years since I have owned the boat. How much if any slack should be present and how often should rigging be need to be adjusted? The rigging is 20years old but replacing is not an option right now. Boat is a Helms 30 1980 mdl. Thank you for your response.
