Is this sentence correct:
1-On a sailboat, the shrouds are pieces of standing rigging which hold the mast up from side to side.
I think they hold a mast up from the sides, but I am not sure one could say they hold it up from side to side.
Maybe if the shrouds were extended across the width of the ship one could say that?

It sounds peculiar to me too.
