Re: Running backstay on my PSC 34

I have laid at the base of my mast in 30+ of wind and saw no noticeable movement. The mast if a tree trunk for sure. I only use my runners in high winds or if on the same tack for a very long time. I cannot see any reason to use them in normal sailing conditions. The rig is just way overbuilt.
