I found just a little information on Running backstays for the cutter rig DE38
http://downeasteryachts.com/in.....n-the-de38

Does anyone else know how necasarry they are. Valkyr doesn't have them and it doesn't look as if she ever did. I have sailed her in up to 25 to 30 knots of wind and she did fine.. didn't see any crazyness with the mast. The authors of the old posts I found seem to think that they were standard equipment.
