Hi Char;

The cunningham is used to add tension to the luff of the mainsail. This
line is attached to one side of the mast, about a foot below the
gooseneck, goes up through the cringle in the mainsail (about a foot
above the tac), and down to a cleat on the other side of the mast
opposite from where it started.  There are variations on this but they
usually include running the lines to a more convenient location like the
cockpit so you don't have to go forward during lousy weather.

The outhaul is used to add tension to the foot of the mainsail. This
line is attached to one side of the boom (aft of the clew), runs forward
to the cringle in the mainsail and aft again to the back of the boom
opposite from where it started. Check Tech Tip F02 for some pictures.

Hope this helps


Bob Schimmel
