Re: Runners and 360 degree penalties
It very much depends on the design of the boat, and whether these are running back stays or whether they are check stays preventing the mast from buckling.
OK, so I meant "check stays". Sorry I was not familiar with the terms. These boats are the ancient seabird half-raters with gunter rig and check- stayed mast.
The only dumb question is the one that you didn't ask because you thought it would make you look dumb.
