French term or phrase: la sortie de votre voile au tire-veille
Context: product description for different types of surf board. This one is for windsurfing.

Paragraph:
Pour débuter, préférez une planche avec un gros volume (entre 135 et 190 litres environ)
pour une plus grande stabilité, cela facilitera la sortie de votre voile au tire-veille, et un pont confortable en EVA pour vous protéger des chocs. Leur grande largeur ainsi que leur dérive ou aileron central amovible procurent une grande stabilité.

Thanks in advance!

Think this is what's being referred to. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windsurfing and also the French entry (not a translation) http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planche_à_voile.

On second thoughts, UPHAUL seems a more likely option. See glossary of windsurfing terms at http://www.windsurfing.sailingcourse.com/terms.htm:
Uphaul: 1) To hoist the rig by pulling on the sail's uphaul. 2) A thick line which attaches to the boom to assist in pulling up the rig and sail.

This is also the term given for tire veille in the Grand Dictionnaire Terminologique: http://www.granddictionnaire.com/btml/fra/r_motclef/index102...

Searching for "tire veille" + uphaul or outhaul came up with this useful site: Lexique des sports olympiques d'été http://www.lexique-jo.org/2004/lexique.cfm?rubrique=VOIL, which gives tire-veille as uphaul.

There's also a picture of "easy uphaul" (tire-veilles sans effort) at http://www.nauticexpo.fr/soc/easy-uphaul/tire-veille-sans-ef...

neutral  Tony M: Certainly not 'outhaul', though 'uphaul' (having a quite different sense) seems likely
