Most people set and forget them if you're the cruising type.

Go racing and you'll be taking off the baby stay off the deck and moving it against the mast each time the kite goes up as you'll need it out of the way to gybe.

Don't forget to make sure the the jib sheets run in front if it before you reset the stay and douse the kite...or your next tack will be quite entertaining for the rest of the fleet!

Heaving to on the race course is frowned upon
