Sailing without a BabyStay

Hi

I'm looking an a Peterson 33 that has a babystay. As I've never sailed with a babystay before I'm wondering if I should simply unhook it for the beer can races around the harbour. Is the prebend created by the babystay simply a performance issue or will I be putting the rig at risk without it.

thanks
Terry
