Farr Ims 40.7 and possibility of putting aft swept back wire?

I had dismasted Farr 40.7 Ims during race and will get it reconected.

However I want to make standing rigging stronger by putting additional wire to pull the mast back like runner does.
(I will also use runner as well)

Would you give me advise for my thinking which is like below?


1. to make eyes around the position where runner attached on a mast

2. to attach wire on both derection (port and starboard)

3. to pull it back to a meter back of side stay turnbuckle on the deck?

(putting 7 shape chain plate on deck and side hull)



I assume that it's not good for her performance,

however If it's not biggey, I rather do it for safty.


Please give me advise in details
