Terminology question about standing rigging
I own a contessa 26, which has a single back stay. It does not connect to the rear of the boat directly but rather connects to two wires/cables that form a inverted V which is connected to chain plates at the rear of the boat.
Not the best picture but the only one I have.
What is the correct term to describe this inverted V ?
Technically it is not the backstay proper but I don't know what to call it??
p.s 7 weeks to launch day, given I lost last summer, it is long over due!!
