Brian,

I have a Pretorien, which has the stay forward of the mast. I believe Henri intended for this to stabilize the mast and not for setting any sail. If you view the stays upper attachment to the mast, it appears to me to not have the functionality to support a storm jib under stormy sea conditions.
