Hello, nice to see that there is someone who is using this section.
1) give me some info about the craft, model and year.
2) I have found specs at different sites and they will explain what the take of the mast should be.
3) I have also found that the down wind side will have less tension while underway.
4) I personally like to have a little bit of tennision on the stays. Not so thought that they sing like a guatar.

Sailboatdata.com usually has a lot of info and sometimes links for further info.

Good Luck
