Martingale Stay (A),
Dolphin Striker (B),
Bobstay (C).

The martingale stay is a stay which runs from the Dolphin Striker to the bowsprit to counteract the upward thrust of the forestays on the bowsprit.
On some ships there is no Martingale or Dolphin Striker, the bobstay runs directly from the stem to the bowsprit.
