Double headstay means two genovas for downwind sailing. Another common usage is hoisting a smaller or larger headsail to the second one and removing the already hoisted one. During this operation one sail will be always covered with the second one and will be easier to work. This might request a second genova car on your genova track or a completely seperate genova track.
