In high powered racing dinghies, with very high tension rigs, we normally relieve the mast tension before we leave our boats rigged for a few days.
As I suppose your Javelin isn't normally very tightly tensioned my suggestion is to leave it as is or, to play it safe, ease the forestay tension a bit...
PS- I suppose you're also lowering the sails right

How to store?
I am planning to put my 14' Oday Javelin in the water this weekend at the family cottage. The downside is leaving on Sunday night, I plan on pulling her up on the beach at the cottage or tie up to the dock. The question I have is should I take down the mast? I will not be back for a few weeks and wondering if there is a risk of damage with leaving it set up?
