Triatic stay

spritoaffine <spritoaffine@...>

Can anyone explain the purpose of the triatic stay other than as an antenna for the SSB. I have some Amel pictures of a Sharki showing the triatic taut (which is how I thought it should always be)when going to windward and slack when on a broad reach (even though the running backstay appears to be in use). Any thoughts?
