Ketch Rigging Term

Greetings Everyone! Pardon my ignorance but I've been a lifelong sloop sailor/owner. I just purchased a ketch and the stay between the top of the mizzen to the top of the main masts is a bit loose. Could anyone tell me the name of this? I've heard it termed a "triatica". Is this correct? Thanks!

it is generally called a triatic stay.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Simply "Triatic" in fact.

Today may be my day SD. Smashed my ankle sailing back to Sydney last week so having a few days off work. Nothing to do but this, eating and reading. Damn sailing boats can be painful at times.

Relatively decent swell, didn't see a wave coming and was thrown across the cockpit. Didn't break it just mashed my ankle against the seat edge then in falling down scrapped the skin off my shin. Nothing major but doc told me to keep it elevated for a couple of days. Any excuse for a couple of days of pure indolence.
