Mind you it is a pretty stiff mast.
Is the load going to be more than the genoa blocks that also go to the toerail?
Sheet blocks can also be under quite a bit of load. On the other hand, if the toe rail fails under those circumstances, the sound of the mast breaking at the staysail attachment isn't the next thing you're likely to hear.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
