Anyway it's downhaul where I come from, because you apply it to the sail to pull it down..

Where did that stupid Cunningham term come from?

So it says " The cunningham differs from a typical downhaul in the way it attaches to the sail"

i would go as so far to say that downhaul is a set prior to sailing and Cunningham is adjustable during.
