Also, you only need the windward one. You can slack off or remove the leeward one so that the main can be fully eased.

Also, in a lot of these boats, the inner forestay has a quick disconnect at the deck. If you have this, you can stow all three and only bother with them when you want to fly a staysail (or perhaps in heavy weather).
