    Runner/Checkstay/Backstay Question

    Fan, we have a small flat top main on a J/88 with a single backstay. If the backstay is not eased prior to a tack the top batten will snag the backstay (even with a flicker) and hang up. Are you suggesting that dropping the traveler prior to the tack will help the main get through?
