Brail (PSF).jpg

Brails, in a sailing ship, are small lines used to haul in or up the edges (leeches) or corners of sails, before furling.[1] On a ship rig, these brails are most often found on the mizzen sail. The command is, hale up the brails, or, brail up the sails.[2] The word brail comes from Middle English brayle, from Anglo-French braiel belt, strap, brail, alteration of Old French braiuel belt, probably ultimately from Latin braca pant.
