A rope used for hauling up a boat’s sail or centreboard.
- All of our sails are rigged and ready to go with adjustable harness lines, booms and uphauls attached.
- The stretchy uphauls made ideal towing ropes as they gave a little when starting and sailing through the chop.
- Holding onto the uphaul the sailor stands up and lifts the sail out of the water.
