Foreguy, but I prefer a downhaul.

That is a line coming from the spinnaker pole, to a swivel turning block at the base of the mast. That way, once it is setup for a particular pole height, the pole can swing without the line needing re-adjustment. This can also be a problem if one looses control of the pole in a seaway, since there will be nothing controlling the swing of the pole toward the shrouds.
