Runners and 360 degree penalties

Hi all,

I'm very new to racing, so please don't mind the very basic question: For a boat with running backstays, how do you handle a 360 or 720 degree penalty? Do you keep both runners taut or both loose or do you charge from port to starboard and back tightening and loosening runners?
