Spanish term or phrase: elevar, sujetar y mantener en pie
Requirements for the host port of a sailing boat regatta:

• Facilidades de apoyo adecuadas para elevar, sujetar y mantener en pie veleros de clase Open y para montar y desmontar mástiles, dentro de una distancia conveniente de las instalaciones de la Marina

Would "raise, hold and hold up" be ok, or are there other phrases specifically used in this context?

Thanks
